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.

Outdoor Classroom Learning Day

 

The infant classes trialled our new outdoor learning area today which consisted of 5 stations: the mud kitchen, the water trays, the sand trays, the construction area and the outdoor instruments. They had great fun making leaf pies, building towers, exploring sounds and playing with water and sand. A huge thank you to Noel who created this wonderful space for us! We hope to have more classes engaging in outdoor play/learning in the coming weeks!

A massive congratulations to Susie McAdam in Ms. O' Donovan's 6th class who received a 'Special Merit Award' for her wonderful self portrait titled 'Me'. Susie is a very talented young artist who was selected from over 25,000 applicants. This is a reflection of her incredible ability and her emerging artistic talent. We are all very proud of Susie's achievement here in St. Brigid's.

Senior Infants Working Hard!!!

The girls in Senior Infants have settled back into school really well and have been learning lots while having loads of fun. They have been doing some fine motor activities in the mornings such as threading, play-dough and construction to get their little fingers nice and strong & ready for all the handwriting! The girls also have been learning about growing up and looking at pictures from when they were a baby.  For art they looked at Picasso's famous work 'The Weeping Woman'. The girls then got the chance to create their own Picasso style faces!
