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.

Incredible Edibles

Many of our classes are taking part in the Incredible Edibles Programme. This is a healthy eating initiative that encourages primary schools across the country to get busy growing carrots, lettuce, potatoes, strawberries, turnips and herbs. The school was supplied with grow packs containing everything they need to grow a veritable feast of healthy foods! Noel, our caretaker, has also been helping classes to plant a variety of herbs and vegetables that should be ready to cook with before the end of the school year. The girls are also learning about where food comes from and the importance of fruit, vegetables and potatoes in their diet. The children are taking great pride in the growing of their crops and making sure they are being watered and weeded regularly.

Active School Week 2021

There was great excitement in the school this week as we celebrated another Active Schools Week.  This year was a bit different as we couldn't invite parents into the school for activities.  However families were very active at home taking part in active challenges that were set by Noel our caretaker, Paula our secretary, Ray our Tag Rugby coach and Amy our GAA coach.  The children and teachers were practising all week and challenged each on Friday.  All classes were busy running laps of the yard as part of the Run Around Ireland Challenge.  There was lots of friendly competition between classes as they tried to run as many kilometres as possible throughout the week.  Classes also took part in cycling safety, Tag Rugby, GAA, an Active Orienteering Fairy trail and Noel set up an obstacle course to challenge the girls' speed and agility.  Well done to the whole school in getting involved in the activities this week!

There was great excitement in the school for Seactain na Gaeilge.  Classes were busy creating St. Patrick's Day Art, learning Irish Dances and using some Nathanna na Cainte.  On Tuesday the girls dressed up in their green clothes and there was a socially distanced Céilí outdoors for the junior classes where the children performed their dances and songs for others.  There was lots of Irish Music to be heard throughout the school and the girls had lots of fun celebrating St. Patrick's Day.
