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.

Dog's Trust Visit

Dogs Trust paid a visit to 4th class. Audrey brought her little kings Charles Lucy into the class. She taught the girls all about how to look after a dog and what one must consider before they buying one. She explained to the girls that dogs need a lot of love and affection. She also showed them what a real microchip looks like and how they work. She explained how important they are especially if your dog goes missing. She gave the girls lovely work sheets, stickers and magnets. The girls loved having Audrey and Lucy in for a visit. They asked lots of super questions and it was a great learning experience for the girls.  We hope they come in for a visit again next year.

Junior Achievement 4th Class Trip to Top Oil

Mrs Delany’s Fourth Class had a wonderful day out to Top Oil at East Point Business Park on Thursday last. Firstly, we were picked up at the school and driven to Dublin Port where we got to see the largest oil storage tanker which is owned by Top Oil. It holds 26 million litres of oil and is 46 metres in diameter. That’s almost the length of Westwood swimming pool! Then we went to see the oil tankers being offloaded at the jetty. 

Next Louise (our JA leader) took us to visit the Top Oil offices at East Point. We all got to ‘drive’ the oil truck. Then we went inside and met everyone in the office and saw where Louise works everyday. We even got to sit in the Board Room. It was great fun. We loved meeting all of the different people that we have learned about in the programme. In fact, we would have quite happily have fired them on the spot and stepped into their shoes!!

Finally, Louise had arranged a little party for us in the office canteen. We also had the presentation of our Junior Achievement certificates and goodie bags. It was a fantastic experience all round. 

Míle buíochas to everyone who helped to make it such a great day out for us but most especially to Louise who made Junior Achievement a most memorable experience for us all in Room 9.
