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.

Ms. Flynn's 3rd class wrote a lovely poem entitled "My Special Friend" for Friendship Week last week. There were lots of friendship activities happening around the school like Buddy Reading, making friendship bracelets, writing nice comments to each other on our Kindness Wall, doing friendship art and much more! We are all great friends in St. Brigid's!

On Wednesday the 8th of May Ms. Concannon's 4th class girls went to Classa as part of Fleadh Áth Cliath 2019. The girls had been very busy practicing their tin whistle for their big performance. St. Brigid's GNS were one of seven local schools partaking in the schools outreach programme. It was a huge success and an enjoyable day for all involved.

The girls began their week dancing their hearts out during Wake Up Shake Up in the big yard and the fun continued all the way to Friday! 

We enjoyed loads of activities including Tag Rugby, Cricket, Badminton (thanks Ms Reilly!), Playground games with Grandparents, a Skipathon, Yoga Óga and Irish dancing. The students and teachers worked very hard at staying active all week and the weather thankfully stayed on our side!

Thank you to everyone involved!

SEAI Workshops

The girls in Senior Infants, 2nd Class and 4th Class got the opportunity to take part in an SEAI workshop where they explored the topic of energy and sustainability in a fun and engaging way. 

Senior Infants got to meet GUZZLER the puppet who loves to waste energy. Through a series of games and activities they learned where our energy comes from. They also learned about the importance of saving energy and how we can make simple changes to help save our environment.

2nd and 4th classes learned about energy and how we can conserve energy in an interactive way.The girls got to carry out a variety of experiments and played the energy game where they were quizzed on what they learned . During the workshop they talked about:

  • The principals of energy

  • The current global problems and what we can do to help

  • The science of energy and climate change.

It was great fun !!
