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.

Mindfulness and Meditation with Sally

As part of our Health Promoting Schools Programme, all classes are engaging in mindful activities.  Each term different classes will have meditation classes with Sally.  This term the Infant classes have their turn of meditation which they started on Wednesday.  The girls engaged in relaxation activities, focused on breathing and experienced being mindful before walking mindfully back to their classrooms.  The girls really enjoyed this experience and are looking forward to doing it again.  Some classes have even been walking mindfully to and from the hall since they leaned this skill from Sally!

3rd Class Ancient Egyptian Projects

Ms. Flynn's 3rd Class learned about the Life of Ancient Egyptians in January.  The children made fantastic displays and presented projects on topics of their choice.  The children also learned how to play an ancient board game called Senet which uses sticks instead of dice.  In addition,  the children painted Egyptian masks and made colourful head-dresses for them.  To finish off the children's learning of the topic, Senior classes were invited to partake in fun Ancient Egyptian activities in the classroom.  Some of these activities included playing Senet, making mummies and breaking a code using hieroglyphic symbols.  The children dressed up for the occasion and it was a very enjoyable afternoon.

Cycling Safety in 5th Class

Both 5th classes have been busy learning about safety when cycling over the last few weeks.  They were given lessons on how to check that their bicycles were safe to use and how to make adjustments to their bicycles so that they are road worthy.  They have been learning about how to cycle safely on the road and have improved their cycling skills.  It has been a very fun learning experience for the girls.  Hopefully we will see much more girls cycling to and from school from now on.
