Strength in Gentleness at St Patrick’s Cooma

Brigidine Sisters in Sydney recently received news from Frances Robertson, Principal of St Patrick’s School, Cooma, about a “special addition” to St Patrick School grounds.

They commissioned a local artisan to create a fire pit at the school to represent the Kildare flame of learning. Brigidine St Ives ex-student and current staff member, Lou MacKay prepared the design.

St Patrick’s is co-educational Kindergarten to Year 10 school situated within the Cooma township. The school continues to build on the traditions and Christian values developed through the influence of the Brigidine Sisters.

It’s great to see the legacy of St Brigid of Kildare living on in vibrant ways in the community at Cooma!
