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.

Inspired by an idea for World Book Day, Mrs. Kearney's class decided to write their own personal stories for the girls in Ms. Flynn's 1st class. The 6th class girls had also built up a rapport with the younger children as they had been listening to their reading every Friday for the past few months. In preparation for writing the story, they interviewed a child in order to find out a bit more about them; their interests/ hobbies, friends and family. The information they gathered was sprinkled throughout the story they created; much to the delight of the younger children. It was a very worthwhile exercise and thanks to Mrs. Kearney and her girls for their unique stories.

Seachtain na nGaeilge sa Scoil!

Bhaineamar an-taitneamh as an tseachtain seo! 

We had a great week of craic agus sparoi 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. 

On Tuesday, we had a ceilí in the halla where each of the classes performed an Irish Dance. On Wednesday, we had the trad group visit the school to give workshops to the classes. On Thursday we had 'Lá Glas' with the children and teachers wearing green! The classes came together in the hall to perform some very popular Irish songs with actions!

'Míle Buíochas' to Ms.Kearney for coordinating the week and to all the teachers who prepared the children for the activities.

Traditional Irish Music Workshops!

Tháinig an grúpa ceoil Airneán isteach inniú. Sheinm siad ceoil tradisiúnta. Bhaineamar an-taitneamh as an lae. Bhí siad ar fheabhas!

The trad group 'Airneán' came in during SnaG to give workshops to each of the classes. The girls got the opportunity to sing and dance along to traditional Irish tunes.

 

Watch some videos from the day below..

3rd Class Spring Art!

The girls in Ms. Wickham's Class are learning about the work of artist Yvonne Coomber. Her raindow drenched paintings sing of tumbling hedgerows, tangled meadowlands, open moorlands and magical forests. The artists intention is to transport the viewer to a place of happiness that is literally saturated in joy. A place where paint smiles!

The girls certainly succeeded in doing so with their beautiful work. Well done!
