We take our name from Kildare (Church of the Oak) in Ireland, the site of St Brigid’s famous monastery. Inspired by the Gospels from an early age, this fifth century woman responded to the hardship she saw around her. Eventually she founded her abbey as a place of hospitality and learning where she nurtured and educated young women to break the cycle of poverty that entrapped them.
It is with this in mind that Kildare College embraces the community of Holden Hill and its surrounding suburbs. As a community we are very proud of our College, our Brigidine identity and the Brigidine ethos which champions women, justice and peace in contemporary Australia.
