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.

Active Week 2018

Our Active Week got off to a great start on Sunday when lots of our pupils, teachers and parents participated in the Parkrun in St.Anne's Park. Throughout the week the classes played badminton, tag rugby, cricket, Taekwando, Irish Dancing, Yoga, soccer, Gaelic and fencing. Active homework was given to the pupils during the week too. We also launched our Active School Walkway this year with the trail around the school grounds. Our annual Skipathon takes place on Friday as well as our student/teacher Dodgeball game!  A fantastic week of activity within the school! Special mention of thanks to Ms.Howard and the Active Committee members who co-ordinated the activities.

Dublin FAI Soccer Finals

A fantastic day in Irishtown Stadium for the Dublin FAI Schools Finals was had on Wed 25th April by our soccer team and mentors. Gary and the the girls remained undefeated throughout and played some super soccer. They topped their group, won their semi-final comfortably and played Our Lady of Good Counsel, last years Dublin and Leinster Champions, in the final. Georgie O'C (5th class) scored our first goal and OLGC went on to equalise in the last ten seconds. The game went to penalties and then sudden death where we were defeated 2-1. A wonderful performance from our team. Many thanks to Ms.Farrell for co-ordinating this year's FAI soccer league.
