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.

Lord Mayor Visits St. Brigid's

On the 22nd of June, we welcomed Lord Mayor, Alison Gilliland to the school.  The Lord Mayor was invited to the school to raise our third Active Flag and our first Amber Flag.  She met with our school committees who discussed the work they have been doing on physical activities, health and well-being, STEM and creative arts.  The committees displayed photos and videos of the activities that have taken place in St. Brigid's over the last year.  Following this, the Lord Mayor came outside where the whole school gathered together to witness the raising of our two flags.  There was great excitement.  The Lord Mayor presented the STEM committee with an award which the school achieved for their work on maths and science.  The Lord Mayor also presented the Creative Arts Committee with a letter which was sent to the school by David Attenborough in response to all the letters received by children in the school.

6th Class Trip to Clara Lara

On Friday 10th of June the girls from 6th class set off on their school tour to Clara Lara. The girls were extremely excited as this was their first school tour in two years! We had lots of fun on the bus there singing songs. When we arrived the girls were given wrist bands which gave them access to go karts, water slides, canoes, zip lines, the playground and so much more. The girls had a great time exploring the park with their friends! After all our fun, we had worked up quite an appetite! The girls enjoyed ice cream, chips and slush puppies in the picnic area! We were all absolutely soaked and exhausted after a long day. We had an awesome time at Clara Lara!
