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.

Basketball Teams

St Brigid’s Girls Basketball Afterschool Program in association with Killester Basketball Club.

Following on from our great success in recent years we have two teams representing the school from 5th and 6th classes. The teams are entered into a primary school league where they will play local schools in the hopes to make the league finals. The girls train every Wednesday 2.20-3.20pm. There is varying ability on the team with girls who play for different clubs and girls who are starting for the first time! Our aim is to have fun, learn something new and give our school a day out at the finals!

Killester Basketball Club is one of the oldest clubs in the country. Leesa our coach has been involved in this club since a very young age. Killester have coaches in various schools throughout Dublin spreading the love of the game. For those interested in playing basketball there are girls and boys teams for every age group starting from ages 4yrs old. The club also has women's, men's, wheelchair and special Olympic teams. On Saturday’s you are welcome go to our local Irish Wheelchair Association in Clontarf to see some exciting games with the family.
