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.

Travel & transport in Infants!

Junior and Senior Infants are busy exploring the theme of “Transport and Travel” in Aistear so two special visitors came to visit them to tell them all about airplanes and flying.  Brendan (Mrs. Howard’s brother) is a pilot and Michelle (Sophie’s mammy) is an air hostess.  They both work for Aer Lingus and they wore their uniforms to show the girls.  Brendan and Michelle told the girls all about the jobs they do.  Brendan showed the girls photos and videos of different airplanes.  Some of these photos were taken from inside the cockpit.  Michelle talked about the safety instructions she gives to passengers on the plane and showed the girls how a life jacket works.   The girls were extremely excited about the experience.   Both Michelle and Brendan answered so many questions the girls had about flying……..they are definitely experts now!

Tour to Pine Forest Art Centre

Our 1st, 2nd and 3rd classes recently visited Pine Forest Art Centre at Glencullen, in the Dublin Mountains. The Art Centre is in a beautiful location surrounded by mountains, woods and streams. All of the girls participated in Art & Craft classes, making dragon pencils and birds nests. A wonderful day, enjoyed by all!

5th Class enjoy Dublin Hop On Hop off Bus Tour!

On Thursday the 4th of May Ms Regan's fifth class went on the Do Dublin Hop On Hop Off Bus Tour. 

Zoe's dad Maurice drove the open top double decker bus. Along the way he told us the history of the tourist sights as we went by. He also sang a few Irish songs, like Molly Malone and O ro se do bheatha abhaile. He told some funny jokes and stories too! Some of the Dublin sights we saw were The Spire, the GPO, Trinity College, Kilmainham Gaol, The Guinness Storehouse and the Phoenix Park. 

Along the tour we stopped off on Dame street and got a bag of chips from Beshoffs. At the end of the tour we got to pick our favourite ingredients to make our own chocolate bar in Coco Bo. We all had a brilliant day and learned a lot about the history of Dublin. We would recommend the bus tour to everyone!

We would like to say a big thank you to Maurice Dalton for going to so much effort to make the day so enjoyable for us!

Basketball Champions!

Both of our basketball teams (5th & 6th class) played their finals against Belgrove earlier today.

First to play were our 5th class girls. The game was very close the whole way through but we got the well deserved win in the end! Next to play was our 6th class team. The girls led throughout the game and in the end captured the win that they deserved. Maith sibh!

Our supporters and teachers provided great support to both teams on the day. Well done to all involved and in particular to Leesa, the girls mentor, who dedicates so much of her time training the teams.
