A Haircut in 6th

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.

SFI Discover Science and Maths Award 2018/2019

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.

Junior Infants Tour 2019

Junior Infants went on a wonderful school tour to Newgrange Farm. The sun shone for them and they had so much fun exploring the farm. They met many of the animals who live on the farm and fed some of them. They played in the sand pit, the water area, the maze and on the toy tractors. The classes went for a very enjoyable tractor ride around the farm with one of the farmers. Finally, they relaxed after a fun filled morning with their lunches in the garden area. It will be a day that they will all fondly remember for a long time.
