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.

New Computer Room

Our newly refurbished computer room is now complete! After a long few months of planning and designing, we have a room equipped with 31 PC's, an Activpanel board and IPads. Thank you to the Student Council and classes who helped with the design stages. Special mention of thanks to Noel, our caretaker, who had spent a lot of time preparing the room for the refurbishment and did a fabulous job painting! We hope the teachers and pupils enjoy their new e-learning experiences!

Mad Hair Day & Ice-Cream!

 

Mad hair day today in the school meant lots of crazy hairstyles! All for a good cause though as the children donated €1 to the Irish Cancer Society. A total of €666 was raised, thank you. As the fabulous weather continued today, all of the girls were treated to an ice-cream cone. This treat was our way of saying well done for all their hard work in class this year. Of course the teachers and other staff members also enjoyed the well-deserved treat too!

The Lifecycle of a Butterfly in 2nd Class!

Ms.Devilly's class  learned all about the lifecycle of a butterfly recently. The classroom was full of excitement these last few weeks as the children observed the changes that took place between each stage until eventually the butterflies appeared!! The girls enjoyed releasing the butterflies into the open air for them to enjoy the next stage of their life!

New playground markings!

Our old unused yard at the back of the school has been transformed this week! Noel, our caretaker, was very busy preparing the surface for the new yard markings which include many playground games including hopscotch, a skip/balance/hop circuit, an alphabet snake and much more! Our classes are enjoying trying out the new games. Two games have also been added to an area next to our senior yard so the girls can make use of these during their activity breaks.

3rd Class trip to St.Anne's Park

The girls from Ms.McKenna and Ms.Wickham's 3rd classes took a trip to St.Anne's Park today. As well as soaking up the sun, the girls enjoyed the beautiful rose garden, the playground and also did some orienteering. What a beautiful day!

Cumann na mBunscol Friendship Games in Belfast

On Friday Nina Hanvey, Kate Mc Govern and Aoife Boyle were chosen to go to Belfast to represent Dublin in the Cumann na mBunscol Friendship games. Here is an account of the day from one of the girls:

We played against Antrim in Gaelic for the Friendship Games. We met all the other girls at Connolly Station and left at 7:30am. We arrived at 10:00am in Belfast. The game started at 11:00am and sadly we lost. Both teams exchanged medals and we got to keep the gear. After we went for something to eat in the Devenish restaurant. Then we went on a bus tour around Belfast and learned lots of new things. We saw murals in the city. It was very interesting. We made lots of new friends and it was a great experience.
