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.

On Wednesday 30th of May, 19 girls from 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class travelled to Morton Stadium, Santry with Ms. Howard and Ms. Nagle to compete in the Cumann na mBunscol Athletics.  The girls raced against girls from 31 other schools in both sprints and relays.  The girls ran extremely well and had a great time taking part in the event.  We are very proud of how well they represented the school and how supportive they were to each other as a team.

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!
