Historic moment for Kildare College

57 years of Kildare’s history was celebrated when Sr Moira Broderick csb, Kildare’s First Teacher in Charge in 1966, returned to the College to connect with our community. 


Sr Moira played an instrumental role in shaping the foundation of Kildare College, being the sole staff member with a 30 student cohort when the College officially opened in March 1966. Addressing the College, it was clear Sr Moira inspired all; with stories of early achievements accomplished by conquering challenges, hope was never lost to grow Kildare into a successful place of education for young women in the growing North-Eastern suburbs of Adelaide. 


Sr Moira inspired the girls as she told them: 

“We were on a learning journey together as teacher, students, community and especially with other Colleges in Adelaide too, setting out with us. We dared to dream and always said, ‘We can do this!’”. 


Sr Moira also toured Kildare and was amazed at its growth. The Administration building was a particularly heart-warming moment, as it was once the convent, where Sr Moira and the other Brigidine Sisters lived. Connecting past and present, relationships blossomed between Sr Moira, students, staff, and Principal, Tina Neate who says “Sr Moira laid the foundation for our College’s success, creating a nurturing environment that continues to empower generations of students."
