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.

Green Schools Award Ceremony

On Tues 22th May, Kate and Rachel travelled to the Helix, DCu for the Green Schools awards ceremony. Our school was awarded our 5th Green Flag for Biodiversity. 

The meaning of ‘Biodiversity’ is easy to understand when we break the word down; “bio” refers to life and ‘living things’ and “Diversity” means just that; range or variety. The word refers to the huge variety and variation of life that surrounds us on planet earth. Maintaining a high level of diversity among plants, animals and all living things all around us is essential in keeping the environment healthy and fit for human life. This includes diversity within species, between species and diversity of ecosystems.

Over the past two years our school community has worked together on the theme of Biodiversity. We installed bird feeding stations, planted lots of trees and developed our school garden to include an insect hotel, planters with vegetables and herbs and planters made from recyclable materials. A fantastic effort from everyone!

First, Second and Third Class Tour to Newgrange Farm

On Tuesday morning six very excited classes set off on buses for their school tour to Newgrange Farm in Co. Meath.  When they got to the farm the girls got to feed lambs and chickens and they also held the baby chickens and a puppy. They practised milking a cow. The girls rode on mini tractors, went on a trailer, explored a hay maze and had great fun playing with water, sand and large tubes.  After all that fun the girls had a lovely picnic in the sunshine.  They had a fantastic day.

End of Year Party for our Sports teams

An end of year party was organised to mark a great end of yet another successful season for all of our sports teams. The Senior GAA team made it to the Cumann na mBunscol semi final and won both finals in the St.Brigid's Blitz in Parnell's. The Junior GAA team played very well for their first time in the Fingal SChools League and made it to two finals, winning one, in the Go Games Tournament in Clontarf. The soccer girls made it to the Dublin finals of the FAI 5-a-side Tournament where they remained unbeaten and only went out on penalties to last year's Dublin and Leinster Champions. A massive thank you to all the players, mentors and parents for their dedication and support over the year. A special mention must go to Carol McGrath for attending every GAA match, supplying the girls with lovely treats and to our soccer managers Noel, Gary Deegan and Brian Payne.

Active Week 2018

Our Active Week got off to a great start on Sunday when lots of our pupils, teachers and parents participated in the Parkrun in St.Anne's Park. Throughout the week the classes played badminton, tag rugby, cricket, Taekwando, Irish Dancing, Yoga, soccer, Gaelic and fencing. Active homework was given to the pupils during the week too. We also launched our Active School Walkway this year with the trail around the school grounds. Our annual Skipathon takes place on Friday as well as our student/teacher Dodgeball game!  A fantastic week of activity within the school! Special mention of thanks to Ms.Howard and the Active Committee members who co-ordinated the activities.
