Kildare College is delighted to announce that earlier this month after consultation with students, staff and Kildare Education Ministries, it was decided that the multi-purpose centre will be called, the ‘Brigidine Centre’.
In celebration of Science week, Kildare College held its inaugural STEM Fair. This included a ‘Pop Up Arcade’ featuring video games coded by students, a drone exhibition and a Flinders University presentation on nanotechnology; however, the main event of the STEM Fair was the Year 9 cohort presenting their Semester One major project. Tasked to design a device to help someone with limited mobility, students had to research and investigate a disability or device of their choice.
Over 30 of our Year 8 to 12 students represented Kildare College at the annual Catholic Schools Music Festival held at the Entertainment Centre.
Congratulations to both of our vocal ensembles, their respective rhythm sections and solo pianist Cathy Tran who were all wonderful representatives of the College.
This week Kildare College was presented with an art work entitled Woman of Strength and Gentleness, painted by artist in residence Chris Crebbin with the assistance of the Nunga Group students.
The art work represents the land which is old, and has many stories. It also represents a woman who embodies the love and connection to the land and spirit. She is a story teller and brings people together to keep culture alive.
The art work will be displayed on the external wall of the College by the Wirra, an area of the College dedicated to indigenous culture and learning.
