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.

Our two Fourth Classes have begun learning how to knit. The girls in both Ms. Concannon’s and Mrs. Delany’s are so enthusiastic and are really eager to learn, so much so that we already have our first hairbands completed. Well done girls! You look fabulous.

Both Fifth Classes are also knitting some spooky witches,  ghoulish ghosties and smashing pumpkins for Hallowe’en. They are sure to be spooktacular!”

September in our Junior Infant classes!

Here are some pictures from the Junior Infants in Ms.Costello's and Ms. Flynn's first month of school! We have had lots of fun and made loads of new friends!

In Aistear, we focused on the theme of 'School'. We learned all about the people who work in our school- the principal, teachers, the caretaker, cleaners, and the lollipop lady. We then pretended to be all these people in our role-play area at play time. We also did lots of cutting and sticking, tracing and played with play dough to practice our fine motor skills! It was loads of fun! 

In September, we did our first Science Experiment! We used skittles and water. We watched the colours of the skittles 'melt away' and disperse. In Art, we also looked at the primary colours- red, yellow, blue and we started mixing colours to create new ones! We made colour wheel turtles. 

We also cheered on the boys and girls in Blue for the All Ireland Final weekend. We made flags and jerseys to show our support! We were so happy when the won the Sam Maguire Cup and the Brendan Martin Cup.

September in Ms.Furey's Senior Infants

This month the girls were very busy in Senior Infants. Room 15 spent the month exploring the theme of the Doctor's Surgery during Aistear time, where they treated many sick patients and went into role as doctors, nurses, receptionists and patients. They had a lot of fun visiting our classroom Doctor's Surgery. 

Senior Infants cheered on the Boys and Girls in Blue during the month of September, ahead of the the Men's and Women's  All- Ireland finals in Croke Park. The girls were delighted when both teams won and took home the Sam Maguire Cup and Brendan Martin Cup. 

The class explored dispersal of colour during Science classes this month. The girls used skittles and water to observe how colours can mix together. 

Senior Infants showed great enthusiasm when beginning coding in school this month. They were introduced to BeeBots, where they used coding to move the BeeBots around our activity mats. The girls worked hard as a team to direct the BeeBot around the Farmyard.
