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.

Junior Achievement 4th Class Trip to Top Oil

Mrs Delany’s Fourth Class had a wonderful day out to Top Oil at East Point Business Park on Thursday last. Firstly, we were picked up at the school and driven to Dublin Port where we got to see the largest oil storage tanker which is owned by Top Oil. It holds 26 million litres of oil and is 46 metres in diameter. That’s almost the length of Westwood swimming pool! Then we went to see the oil tankers being offloaded at the jetty. 

Next Louise (our JA leader) took us to visit the Top Oil offices at East Point. We all got to ‘drive’ the oil truck. Then we went inside and met everyone in the office and saw where Louise works everyday. We even got to sit in the Board Room. It was great fun. We loved meeting all of the different people that we have learned about in the programme. In fact, we would have quite happily have fired them on the spot and stepped into their shoes!!

Finally, Louise had arranged a little party for us in the office canteen. We also had the presentation of our Junior Achievement certificates and goodie bags. It was a fantastic experience all round. 

Míle buíochas to everyone who helped to make it such a great day out for us but most especially to Louise who made Junior Achievement a most memorable experience for us all in Room 9.

Spelling Bee!

We held a spelling bee in school recently! First we had in-class competitions. Then the winning 4 of those competitions went up against the 4 from the other class in their year. Then finally we had junior and senior competitions. The winner of the junior competition was Julie McGowan and the winner of the senior competition was Cuileann Monaghan. Well done to those girls but also to everyone involved! Your hard work on your spellings has paid off!
