2015 Parent Satisfaction Survey

The district Parent Satisfaction Survey will launch on March 15th and will remain open until May 15th.  The survey will only be available online.  Parents that do not have access to the internet are encouraged to visit St. Brigid School to use a computer to access the survey. Survey results reports for each school will be compiled at the end of May and provided to school principals for the purpose of sharing with the school community and to use in their next year school plans.

Fluor Engineering Challenge

Fluor Engineering Challenge

Students at St. Brigid will be able to participate in the Fluor Engineering Challenge to build interest and enthusiasm for the field of engineering. Fluor Canada is sponsoring a contest with students building a balloon powered car with specific materials that is strong enough to carry a load of pennies.

Two prizes of $2500 and $1500 are available for schools to win. There is nothing better than a fun hands on challenge in science! But we need your help! The wheels for the cars must be CDs. We are looking for old or scratched CD’s that can be donated to the cause of science. Please send in any old CD’s you would like to donate to the school, attention Mrs. Wong by February 22, 2015. Students will then have three weeks to complete and enter this challenge. Science Rocks! Thanks for your support.
