During his visit on November 9, the Premier was able to appreciate firsthand the diverse cultures represented in the school community and some of the programs offered including wellbeing initiatives, intensive English classes and the St Brigid’s Community Hub.

Joining the Premier at the school was John Neate, chair of the South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools. During a school assembly the pair presented each year level with medals and certificates signifying their participation in the Premier’s Reading Challenge.

Year 6 student Masooma was thrilled to receive a Hall of Fame certificate commending her eight years of participation in the reading challenge that was personally presented by the Premier.

Acting principal Paula Burns said the visit by Mr Malinauskas “meant the world to our students”.

“Earlier this year he left such a positive impact on our Year 4, 5 and 6 students who visited Parliament House and our students were so excited to welcome him into the place where they learn,” she said.

“It’s an incredibly proud moment – getting the opportunity to speak with the Premier. We have over 35 cultural and faith backgrounds at our school and this moment will hold a special place in the hearts of our school community for a long time.”
