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.

Seachtain na Gaeilge 2020!

Bhaineamar an-taitneamh as an tseachtain seo! 

We had a great week of craic agus spraoi sa scoil as each of the classes made a huge effort for Seachtain na Gaeilge. Throughout the week the girls made an extra effort to speak as Gaeilge in their classes, in the corridors and in the school yard. 

There were lots of activities in the school to celebrate SnaG. A pupil from each class was chosen as a winner in our St.Patrick's Day Art competition. A 'Cainteoir na Seachtaine' was also selected from each of the classes and presented with a prize from Ms. Diffley. On Tuesday we had a trad group 'Airneáin' visit the school to give workshops to all the classes. On Wednesday 'Cluiche Gaeilge' were organised for the children to participate in which they thoroughly enjoyed. On Friday we had young musicians from Ceoltas Ceoltóirí Éirinn visit the school. They performed a variety of traditional Irish songs and the children sang along. They also talked about the different instruments they played and what they were made from. Unfortunately we didn't get to have our 'Lá Glas' and 'Céilí Mor' which was planned for Friday due to the school closures. All in all the children had a great week and learned lots of new phrases. 

'Míle Buíochas' to Ms.McDOnald for coordinating the week and to all the teachers and pupils for making it an enjoyable week!

SEAI Energy Workshops

On Friday the 6th of March the girls in 1st class and 4th class got the opportunity to participate in a SEAI workshop where they explored the topic of energy and sustainability in a fun and engaging way. 1st class met GUZZLER the puppet who loves to waste energy. Through a series of games and activities the girls learned all about where our energy comes from. They also learned about the importance of saving energy and how we can make simple changes to help save our environment. 4th class learned all about energy too and the importance of conservation through carrying out a variety of experiments. The workshop focused primarily on: the principals of energy, the current global problems and what we can do to help and the science of energy and climate change. The girls really enjoyed the workshop and picked up a few practical tips that we can do in our school to save energy.
