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.

SEAI Workshop

The SEAI talk was about saving energy and was delivered to some Senior Infants, 2nd and 5th classes. The girls talked about ways that they use energy.  They engaged in activities and games that helped them to discover where energy comes from, the importance of saving energy and the various ways in which they can save energy. They then met Guzzler, the puppet, and came up with ways to help him to save energy at home and in school.  The girls learned about how their food gets its energy and how the energy from their food is used to make their bodies work.  They investigated how clothes can be used to keep heat in our bodies and how moving around can generate heat. They also discovered that light, sound, heat and electricity are forms of energy. The girls really enjoyed the talk!
