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.

Our girls took on the teachers in two very exciting dodgeballs games today! Our teachers were victorious in the first game but the students were very strong in the second game and got a well deserved win! The Skipathon final also took place.

Active Week Activities!

Everyone is enjoying Active Week this week! The classes are participating in so many activities - Tag Rugby, tennis, Tae Kwando, badminton, basketball, GAA, dancing, skipping, yoga, cricket, pilates, dodgeball, ultimate frisbee among others! Parents and grandparents have also taken part in our Wake Up Shake Up dances on Monday & Friday as well as teaching the girls some playground games. On Wednesday, each class participated in an Active Picnic - (no food involved!) - instead of food there was a wide variety of activities in the yard including tug-o-war, an obstacle course, welly boot throwing, hoops and lots more! 

Teachers, parents and pupils will all be very tired at the end of this week after being so active! Well done to everyone for getting involved!

On Monday & Friday, all parents are invited to join in our whole school 'Wake up Shake Up' sessions which will begin at 8.35am in the school yard. Some classes may also have invited parents/grandparents join them for playground games on Monday at 9am in the yard.

During the week the children will participate in a huge range of activities from yoga to cricket, tennis to ultimate frisbee. An Active Picnic will take place on Wednesday for all the classes.

On Friday the girls are invited to wear their county colours for Jersey Day as they play some GAA. The girls are also encouraged to walk/scoot to school on this day.

A very Active Week indeed. Special mention of thanks to Ms.Howard and the Active School Committee for coordinating Active Week and for organising such great activities for the teachers, pupils and parents to enjoy!

 

 

Table Quiz Fundraiser

The Parents Association were very busy the past few months preparing for our Table Quiz night in Parnells GAA club on April 6th. There was a fantastic turnout on the night with lots of fabulous prizes on offer! The school would like to offer our sincere thanks to all of the parents who worked so hard to ensure the Quiz night was a success. We would also like to thank all the local businesses for sponsoring tables and donating prizes. Lastly, thank you to all those parents who were in attendance on the night and to those who offered their support in the lead up to the event. Your support will make a big difference to the school, raising much needed funds for our new computer room.

THANK YOU!
