Isabelle grew her hair to 14 inches . It took a long long time . She could almost sit on it. And then what did she do ? She went to the hairdresser, They tied it in a plait and snipped it all off. Why ? Isabelle was growing her hair to donate it all to Rapunzel , the organization that makes wigs for children undergoing. chemotherapy. We think that was a very selfless thing to do. Well done Isabelle. and everyone thinks your new style is gorgeous as well.
The atmosphere was electric today in Room 6 as Klopp, Mane, Firmino and Salah paid a visit before heading to Madrid for tomorrow’s game. The fans sang “You’ll never walk alone” together and watched some of Liverpools greatest goals. C’mon Liverpool !!
We had a lovely ceremony yesterday, celebrating the confirmation of our 6th class pupils. Everyone remarked on how reverent they were and on the lovely peaceful and calm atmosphere that pervaded the entire ceremony. Special thanks to Fr. Coughlan who oversaw the preparations. Bishop Field officiated and the children all loved him. Thank you to the class teachers , choir and altar servers for making it such a special day. After the ceremony, the PTA provided refreshments for the adults and the newly confirmed pupils had refreshments in their classrooms.
We are delighted to announce that St. Brigid’s has been awarded a SFI Discover Science and Maths Plaque of STEM Award for the academic year 2018/2019!
This award has been received in recognition of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths work that is undertaken across all classes in our school. A huge thanks to all the teachers and pupils in the school for all their hard work and enthusiasm!
Here is some feedback from the Science Foundation of Ireland:
‘Excellent log, clearly showing the huge amount of STEM work in the school this year. It demonstrates the application of science and maths skills by the children in a wide range of contexts. The use of technology for movies, coding and map making with Minecraft reflects great integration into work across the curriculum. Congratulations on your Award and well done to everyone!’
STEM education is an approach to teaching and learning that integrates the content and skills of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. The learning is project-based and focuses on inquiry, student-led investigation and the development of 21st century skills such as collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, problem solving and the use of technology. Our STEM initiative has been running in our school since Sept. 2016 and is facilitated by Ms. O’Callaghan.
Well done to our our pupils who travelled to Santry today to take part in the athletics today. Mr Lowery and Ms. O’Brien spent the last few weeks selecting the fastest children in the school and then training them every day. Many of them reached the finals from the heats today and we had silver and bronze boys relay medal winners . A few snaps below.
Congratulations to all the boys and girls in Mr. Harrison and Ms. Harte’s classes who made their communion last Saturday. The ceremony was beautiful . Many thanks to Mr. Harrison , Ms Harte, Ms. Dabrowska and Ms. Nolan for all their hard work and also Ms. Murphy for accompanying the children on the organ again this week.
