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.

Collins Barracks

The girls from 6th class attended an exhibition called ‘The Recovered Voices Tour. The tour focused on the people involved in World War One and how the war impacted their lives. It encompassed the nature of the First World War and the stories of nurses, doctors, prisoners of war and ordinary soldiers. The girls made the trip over to Collins Barracks on the Dart and then the Luas. After the tour, the girls got to enjoy their lunch in Croppies Acre before returning to school. Thank you to our parent volunteer to accompanied on this fabulous tour!

The girls from 5th and 6th class have been taking part in choir with Ms. Wickham every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning. The girls have been working very hard preparing some beautiful Christmas songs for their well anticipated Candlelight Concert in St. Brigid's Church.  The girls will also be paying a visit to Sybil Hill nursing home where they will sing for the elderly residents.  The girls have been rehearsing really hard and they are very excited to showcase their talent.  We hope to see you there in St. Brigid's Church on the 20th of December. 

Check back soon for some videos! 

Thrashion Show!

Our school has been engaging in a very exciting project over the past few months. As part of creative schools our school has parterened up with artist and photographer Annie Holland. Annie has been teaching us all about living more  sustainability. As part of our work with Annie, we wanted to send a message that using single use plastics is destroying our environment! We decided to create headpieces and outfits using single use plastics. We also decided to send letters to companies that are using plastic irresponsibly. We have worked really hard on this and we’re so excited to showcase our hard work. The thrashion show took place in the hall this week. We had some amazing girls volunteer to model the piece. The show was recorded and will be shared with parents and students in the coming weeks.
