Mrs Stokes received a wonderful surprise in the. post this week…a certificate of merit from the Texaco Art Competition for Claire Feely. Claire pictured above with her certificate is in Senior Infants and was the only winner this year. Well done Claire !
The children in 5th class Room 28 had a wonderful school tour to Croke Park and Dublinia, take a look at some photos below.
A huge congratulations to the Fifth and Sixth class Green School representatives who succeeded in getting funding from Fingal County Council to install a Crystal Clear Water Bottle Filler in our school reception area. The eight members wrote a persuasive letter to Fingal County Council outling the school’s campaign to encourage all our pupils, teachers and staff members to bring reusable water bottles to school. Armed with the results of their survey and detailing the reasons why this water filler was needed, they presented their case to the Education Environmental Office, who was so impressed, she put the wheels in motion to get ther water filler installed before the holidays! Well done to this fantastic group of pupils! A huge thank you to Mr. Ivers, our caretaker, who has helped the committee with their endeavours all year and for the reusable water bottles he and Ms. N. Fay presented to the committee members and the pupils in Room 27. A final thank you to Ms. O’Halloran who officially cut the green ribbon! The Green School committee would like to encourage everyone to keep up the great work of reusing, reducing and recycling during the holidays! Míle buíochas!
Yesterday our four lovely 6th classes graduated from St. Brigid’s. The ceremony was held in the hall. Representatives from each class read a poem composed by their classmates to celebrate their time together.
Ms. Fay spoke about how remarkable their journey from Junior Infants was, showing them a slideshow of their pictures from 2014 on.
After the teachers presented them with their pins and momentous, it was back to class for a well-deserved breakfast and then…..the most prolonged goodbye ever as they were cheered and clapped out of the school.
So long, 6th class. We leave you with these words.
The children from both Room 2 & 26 had a lovery Summer scavenger hunt on Monday on the Church green. The girls and boys had great fun working with their buddy readers to find lots of different summer objects.
Ms. Scanlon’s Junior Infants and their Fifth class buddies in Ms. Fay’s class went on a summer scavenger hunt around the Church green today. Everyone enjoyed the activity and left with smiles on their faces.
We were very proud to hear that several of our pupils played in the Dublin Handball finals last weekend.
The U11 boys final was an interesting affair with great friends Daire and Seán playing against each other. It was a tight match with Seán coming out on top on this occasion. Daire’s hot on his heels however!
In the U12 final, Jack was beaten in a close match while Daragh played brilliantly to win the U13 final.
Out past pupil Fintan also won the U14 final!
The girls are playing their finals later in the week so we wish them well and look forward to hearing how they got on.
After a long silence of two years we would like to introduce our newly formed St. Brigid’s NS Senior Choir.
They would like to share their recording of a beautiful song, ‘A Little Peace’.
It is hard to believe they only started practising a short few weeks ago!
Well done to all our 6th class pupils who ran a fantastic cake sale today. Our thanks to the parents, guardians and pupils who brought in so many cakes in aid of Make a Wish Ireland.
