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.

4th class participate in the RDS Primary Science Fair!

Ms.Concannon's class were selected to participate in this year's RDS Primary Science Fair which was held in conjunction with the BT Young Scientist of the Year competition. The class project 'Can a Skyscraper fall for a tremor?' was very popular among the judges and the visitors at the event. The girls were asked lots of questions about their project and demonstrated how Lego skyscrapers actually fall for a tremor using their specially designed table (courtesy of Noel, our caretaker!). The girls had a great day and got the opportunity to look at lots of other science experiments & projects, participate in workshops and visit lots of stands showcasing STEM activities!

4th Class visit Le Chéile for Food Science workshop

The girls from 4th & 5th classes got to experience 'Foodoppi's Molecular Gastronomy Edible Science Show' in Le Chéile during Science week. Foodoppi presented "Eat your Science" hosted by Celebrity Chef Louise Lennox and Food Scientist Aisling Larkin. The exciting, fast paced science and food show gave the children an opportunity to see food become experiments they could eat. It also enabled the children to explore chemical reactions and physical changes of food. unlocking the science secrets, amazing their eyes and tastebuds! A traditional fruit salad was redesigned using the knowledge of hydrocolloids and the world of renowned molecular gastronomy techniques to make fruit spaghetti, yogurt spheres and cook with one of the coldest liquids on the planet, liquid nitrogen. 

The girls had an amazing time, getting to explore food, flavour and science!
