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.

3rd class visit our local Super Valu!

The girls in Ms.McKenna's 3rd class visited our local Super Valu in Killester this morning. They learned about the importance of nutrition, eating a balanced diet and living a healthy lifestyle. The girls were guided through the bakery and the fresh food produce and lots more. They got to sample some healthy foods too and were also very grateful to have received a goody bag full of healthy pieces!

Coding/Lego in 4th class

The children in 4th class had great fun using lego WeDo construction sets and laptops to programme a crocodile to open and close its mouth. The girls learned lots about following instructions and how coding works. They worked in groups and were challenged to complete the task set. They used motors and sensors to move their creation. It was a big hit in the classes and immensely enjoyed by all!

Choir record a Christmas Album!

Our choir had a very busy day today recording their Christmas Album. The girls sang many of our Christmas favourites! A big thank you to the teachers involved, Rodney and Kevin who helped out with the recording.

Well done to Fiona Rose, Arianna and Jules whose drawings were chosen to create the CD cover. We cannot wait to see and hear the finished product!

The Christmas CD will be available to purchase in the school from December 18th. It can also be purchased before and after the Christmas Carol Service which takes place in St. Brigid's Church, Killester on Tuesday 19th December at 7pm. Funds raised from the Christmas album will go towards school improvements.
