"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 two Senior Infant classes put on a fantastic performance of 'A Wriggly Nativity' for parents. The girls really shone on the stage and did themselves and their parents very proud! Ms.Howard and Ms.Shiels also worked very hard behind the scenes so well done to you too!

St Brigid’s Girls Basketball Afterschool Program in association with Killester Basketball Club.
Following on from our great success in recent years we have two teams representing the school from 5th and 6th classes. The teams are entered into a primary school league where they will play local schools in the hopes to make the league finals. The girls train every Wednesday 2.20-3.20pm. There is varying ability on the team with girls who play for different clubs and girls who are starting for the first time! Our aim is to have fun, learn something new and give our school a day out at the finals!
