April Cake Sale Update

On Friday 29th of April, we are having our first cake sale in over two years!

  • Please send cakes or buns, shop bought or home made into school with the children on Friday. The children will bring the cakes to the hall after the bell rings.
  • Please label any containers that need to be returned with your child’s name and class.
  • Each child should have a spare lunch box to put their purchases in as we are limiting our use of plastic bags
  • Children can bring in €2  to spend at the cake sale
  • Classes will visit the cake sale throughout the morning to make their purchases.
  • Reminder: We are a nut free school so please check ingredients before sending in cakes
  • Parents of children with allergies might wish to send specific treats for their child to “purchase”. Please label these clearly eg. Dairy Free / Gluten Free/Egg Free

Thank you for supporting our school fundraisers.

School Closure: Primary Language Curriculum Day – Sustained Support & Webinars

The PLC (Primary Language Curriculum) for all four stages of primary school (junior infants to sixth class) was launched in September 2019.

The Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST) in collaboration with the National Council for Special Education (NCSE) has continued the PLC  professional learning programme for teachers this year.

As a result our school will  close to pupils  for a full day on Friday June 3rd to allow for staff training.

See this link for information on the Primary Language Curriculum

The school will reopen to pupils on June 13th.

Lego Robotics in Room 27 5th class

Take a look at some of the fantastic projects completed by Ms. G. Fay’s 5th class over the last few weeks. They built and programmed Cooling Fans, Moving Satellites, Milo the Science Rover and other scice projects looking at pulling, speed, robust structure, plants and pollinators and preventing flooding. They also worked with motion sensors on their models.

Cake Sale Results

We want to say a huge thank you to all our pupils, parents and guardians (and some grannies as well ) for the tremendous effort everyone put into our first cake sale in nearly three years. Thank you for sending in so many cakes. We raised a staggering €3500  which is probably a new world record for a cake sale!

This will be added to the activ panel fundraising pot.

A special thank you to Sue Wiseman and the PTA ladies who worked tirelessly all day and to Jo Hughes, our  Community Centre Coordinator who helped with the big clean up at the end of the day.

Sporting Success in 6th class! @StBrigidsGAA

We were very proud to head that the St. Brigid’s GAA Féile camogie teams had great success over the weekend, with the A team winning the Division 2 title and the B team losing in a well contested semi-final.

What made it even more special was that several of our 6th class girls were playing on both teams as well as many of our past-pupils!

Aisling Feeney, Allie Tuthill and Elizabeth McCabe played with the B team while Isabelle Lambert played with the A team, scoring a goal in the final! An amazing achievement for 6th class pupil!
