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.

Splatter Painting

Noel, our amazing caretaker built us an outdoor classroom using palettes this summer.

On Friday 16th of September, our whole school had the opportunity to go outside and splatter paint our new outdoor furniture! We buddied up with younger children and went outside for some fun.

We can’t wait to be able to use outdoor classroom very soon!

Junior Infants Start School Sept 2022

We were delighted to welcome our New Junior Infants to school today.  Ms. Shiels and Ms. Malone met with the girls and their parents and they all played together in their classrooms.  The parents then went to the hall for some tea and coffee which was organised by the Parents Association.  The girls quickly settled into the school day and had great fun playing with toys, colouring pictures, listening to stories and singing some songs.  Both classes also spent some time outdoors playing together.  We are sure that the girls enjoyed their first day in St. Brigid's and their teachers are looking forward to welcoming the girls back next week for lots of exciting and fun learning activities.

Lord Mayor Visits St. Brigid's

On the 22nd of June, we welcomed Lord Mayor, Alison Gilliland to the school.  The Lord Mayor was invited to the school to raise our third Active Flag and our first Amber Flag.  She met with our school committees who discussed the work they have been doing on physical activities, health and well-being, STEM and creative arts.  The committees displayed photos and videos of the activities that have taken place in St. Brigid's over the last year.  Following this, the Lord Mayor came outside where the whole school gathered together to witness the raising of our two flags.  There was great excitement.  The Lord Mayor presented the STEM committee with an award which the school achieved for their work on maths and science.  The Lord Mayor also presented the Creative Arts Committee with a letter which was sent to the school by David Attenborough in response to all the letters received by children in the school.

On Thursday 16th of June the girls from sixth class were very lucky to participate in a flower arranging course.A florist named Catherine came to the school and showed the girls how to make the most beautiful flower arrangement which they got to bring home and gift to one of their loved ones.
