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.

Christmas Shoe Box Appeal

A big thank you to all the families who donated gift-filled shoe-boxes to the Christmas Shoe box Appeal. A massive 295 shoeboxes were collected.

The shoeboxes will be sent to children living in very difficult situations in different parts of Africa and Eastern Europe. A big thank you to Noel, our caretaker, for co-ordinating this worthy cause again this year.

Science Week 2019

Science week took place this week, from Nov 10th-17th. The classes engaged in lots of Science activities during the week. Two Scientists from ‘Anyone4Science’ will visited the school on Mon 11th to deliver workshops which focused on Forces to our S.I, 2nd, 4th & 6th classes.

On Tues 12th, our two 3rd classes visited Le Chéile in Donnycarney for a Science Roadshow about 'Dippy the Dino's Digestive Dilemma'. 

The two 5th classes participated in a series of Ozobots workshops. Ozobots are pocket-sized robots that are programmable through hand-drawn colour-coded lines. Ozobots connect children to the world of robotics and teach them how to code, design and solve problems. 

Our Junior & Senior Infants were busy using Bee Bots in their classroom— BeeBot is an exciting robot designed specifically for use by young children. This colourful, easy-to-operate, and friendly little robot is a perfect tool for teaching sequencing, estimation, problem-solving, coding and just having fun! 

Our 3rd—6th classes enjoyed a 5 week module of Scratch coding with Ms.Scott and class teachers before mid-term break. Each of the classes visited the computer room once a week and engaged in interactive stories, games, and animations using Scratch.
