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.

Word Hunt!

Singin' in the Rain

Our Jun Inf, Sen Inf and 1st classes braved the poor weather this morning to perform for their parents in the yard! The girls and their teachers sang and danced along to eight popular tunes including 'Roar', 'Bare Necessities' and 'can't Stop the Feeling'. What a performance! Well done to all involved, the parents really enjoyed it!

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, teachers and classes who helped during the design stages. Special mention of thanks to Noel, our caretaker, who prepared 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.
