History Week in Room 4!

Lots of children brought in items from the past- old telephone, chalk box, photographs, roman army helmet, teddies, watches, kodak camera, turf, books and so much more! We learned a lot about St. Brigid’s School from long ago. We had a brilliant time with Mr. Lowery’s 6th Class where we put our History skills into action, doing a Kahoot History Quiz.

Treasures of Castleknock Exhibition

Last week Mr. Mac Cann organised a local history exhibition in the school library. Some pupils and teachers brought in old artefacts and then spoke about them to classes when they visited.   Sarah and Grace Duffy brought in their Grandad’s first computer and Mr.Courtney brought in his uncle’s geometry set. Lots of really unusual exhibits from the locality as well. It was a great way to end our Local History week.

 

Another Haircut

A while ago we featured Isabelle from 6th who had cut her hair to donate to to Rapunzel , the organization that makes wigs for children undergoing. chemotherapy.

Last week we discovered another angel in 3rd class, Emily Keegan  who also cut her beautiful long blonde hair and donated it as well.

We are so proud of both girls . Not only are they helping other children but they have gorgeous new hairstyles as well! Well done Isabelle and Emily.
