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.

Santa's Visit and The Christmas Raffle

On Wednesday the 18th of December we had a very special visitor here in St. Brigid's ...SANTA CLAUS!! He popped into each class to have a little chat with the girls and to see all their hard work. He even brought some of his helpers along. The girls were very excited and sang a few Christmas songs for them.

The Parents Association also held the Christmas Raffle in the school that day. There were lots of great prizes up for grabs!! It was a fantastic day over all.

4th Class visit URF Academy Riot Games

The girls in Ms. Concannon's 4th class had a great day out visiting URF Academy Riot Games at The Observatory on Sir John Rogerson's Quay. The girls got to experience what it was like to work in the games industry. They participated in fun filled, casual, games based learning sessions with Rioters (Riot Games employees). They learned all about game development and what it takes to create a well balanced, fun yet challenging game. The girls thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. Each girl received a goodie bag on the day and got a special tour of the office.

Christmas Carol Service 2019

Our choir performed some festive favourites, songs from movies and traditional Christmas songs at out annual Carol service held in St. Brigid's Church on Tuesday the 17th of December. It was a wonderful evening where the school community came together to listen to the girls sing while also getting the opportunity to take some timeout from the busy lead up to Christmas. Special mention to Ms. Flynn and Ms. Nagle for all their hard work preparing the choir for the service.

ESB Workshop

On Tuesday 10th of December Ms. Flynn's 3rd class took part in an electricity workshop organised by ESB. The girls had a great time making Scribblebots and they even got to take home their creations at the end of the day! The girls learnt about the work of the ESB and where we get our electricity from. The workshop was very hands on and engaging. Children made electric circuits using batteries, wires and a motor. These were attached to a paper cup with markers. The motor caused the Scribblebots to vibrate which created interesting drawings on a page. At the end the children decorated their Scribblebots. The following week the children wrote an explanation text about how the Scribblebots work. It certainly was a fun way to learn about electric circuits. Many thanks to the ESB team who organised the workshop.
