Last Day in St.Brigids!

One of our first class pupils had his last day in St. Brigid’s on Friday. We are sad to see him leave. While in 1st class he expressed such a great love for Cavan football that Mr Mc Veety presented him with the Cavan Jersey . Maybe he will line out for the boys in blue sometime in the future !!

Attendance Figures

We share our attendance figures with An Tusla twice a year. If your child misses more that 20 days we are obligated to report this. 20 days missed is nearly a month of school. It is important that we know the reason for any absences so we can include this in any report we make.

Our best month this year for attendance was October when a staggering 97.8% of our pupils were in school.This was also the best month over the last five years.

Overall atendance this year is slightly down,  possibly due to the volume of tummy bugs and the flu outbreak of this past winter. We are currently running at 96.2% attendance but the record to beat is 96.4% from last year.

Soccer Season

Soccer  season has started with a league match for the 6th class soccer team today. We started slowly against a strong John Bosco’s side and unfortunately we lost 3-1 despite  a great goal from Finn O’Neill in the second half.

Everyone played really well with notable performances from Phelim Scott in goal, Denys Yaskerskyy, Charlie Sheridan and Evan Maxwell in defence. Tara O’Hanlon and Finn O’Neill dominated in  midfield and Sean Ogbomo was excellent up front.

We didn’t win but it was a promising start.
