Fáilte

St. Brigid's GNS was established by the Holy Faith Sisters in 1928 to cater for the educational needs of the children of Killester parish and the surrounding area. The school supports the principles of

"inclusiveness, equality of access and participation in the school and respect for
diversity of values, beliefs, traditions, languages
and ways of life in society"

We are committed to nurturing the Catholic faith through religious education, preparation for the sacraments and through the ethos of the school. The ethos is demonstrated through respect shown for each person in the school - pupils, members of staff, parents and visitors. We value our relationship with parents and the community and we are committed to working in partnership with all involved in the education process so as the best interests of each child are catered for.

National Fitness Day - take on the teacher challenge!

All the teachers and classes came together today in the senior yard for the Student Teacher Penalty Shootout. Noel, our caretaker, was goalkeeper! A representative from each class, along with a number of teachers, took a penalty each. Tensions were high as some goals were scored, and some not! Ms.Concannon and Chloe from 4th class ended up in the final with Chloe scoring the winning penalty! Each of the girls who participated received a medal. What an exciting day!

STORYTELLER VISITS 4TH CLASS

Our 4th class girls were very lucky to have such a wonderful storyteller visit to their classes on Wednesday. Geraldine Meade grabbed the children's attention and imaginations with her excellent storytelling techniques. She gave the girls a great talk about the importance of writing and reading and continued by giving them a taste of her new book that is yet to be released. The girls were all very involved and engaged in the workshop. They even had time to get into character and participate in a short role-play. The girls had a lovely morning with Geraldine and we hope to see her to the school again.

6th Class News

The girls from Ms.Kenny's 6th Class have been busy this month. Read some of their accounts below:

Tag Rugby

"We enjoyed playing Tag Rugby with Ray over the past three weeks. During week one we learned the basics of having to pass the ball behind you and how to use the tags. We played tag chasing and loved it! After a week of rest we played bulldog except in a Tag Rugby way and we also played matches. Week three was lots of matches and lots of fun! I enjoyed my weeks of Tag Rugby and I wish to play it again!"   Ellen S.

Computer Room

"I love our new computer room! It has enough brand new computers for everyone in the class. We have played learning games that are so much fun like Maths games, Geography games and more! I can see our class using the computers to look up things for projects and homework. The computer room is also very good because of the touch screen board at the front of the room where the teacher can show us what we are supposed to be doing. I am having a great time learning in our computer room!"  Poppy R.

Our Mini-habitats Projects:

" Over the past few weeks we learned all about the different types of home that animals and humans call their home. Some of the habitats we learned about included the Polar regions, the Savannah, the Rainforest, woodlands and beaches! We also looked at home through history in our locality. For our project we typed up a paragraph on what animal and habitat we planned to do on Google classroom. Then we made a mini-habitat for the animal that we chose and brought them into school. I, and everybody, in my class loved making, designing and learning about habitats and homes. It will be an experience I will never forget all through secondary school!" Ailbhe M.

On Monday September 11th, Lisa from the Road Safety Authority (RSA) visited our school to give a road safety talk to all of the classes. The talk was very useful and Lisa gave the pupils some very useful tips when using the roads. Our Junior Infants got some high visability jackets to wear for their journey to and from school.The RSA advises that Parents/Guardians talk to their children about using the roads safely getting to and from school.
