#BeActive Education Award

We are pleased to announce that we have been nominated for the #BeActive Education Award by The Irish Sport Council.  The #BeActive Education Award 2017 is one of three award categories of the #BeActive Awards, launched as part of the 2017 European Week of Sport. This award category identifies three educational establishments from across Europe that promote active educational settings in addition to sport/physical activity classes in the standard curriculum to encourage young people to #BeActive. St. Brigid's GNS was chosen to represent Ireland in this category. A massive well done to to all of our teachers, pupils and parents for this nomination.

The Irish Sports Council informed us that the selection committee were particularly impressed by the inclusive nature and overall impact of our physical activity efforts. The European Council are now in the process of selecting three finalists in the education category to attend an awards ceremony which will take place in Marseilles, France in mid-October. Fingers crossed everyone!

New playground markings!

Our old unused yard at the back of the school has been transformed this week! Noel, our caretaker, was very busy preparing the surface for the new yard markings which include many playground games including hopscotch, a skip/balance/hop circuit, an alphabet snake and much more! Our classes are enjoying trying out the new games. Two games have also been added to an area next to our senior yard so the girls can make use of these during their activity breaks.

New Yard Markings

Singin' in the Rain

Our Jun Inf, Sen Inf and 1st classes braved the poor weather this morning to perform for their parents in the yard! The girls and their teachers sang and danced along to eight popular tunes including 'Roar', 'Bare Necessities' and 'can't Stop the Feeling'. What a performance! Well done to all involved, the parents really enjoyed it!

The Lifecycle of a Butterfly in 2nd Class!

Ms.Devilly's class  learned all about the lifecycle of a butterfly recently. The classroom was full of excitement these last few weeks as the children observed the changes that took place between each stage until eventually the butterflies appeared!! The girls enjoyed releasing the butterflies into the open air for them to enjoy the next stage of their life!
