Last Friday, the 4th classes visited Castleknock College as part of our Local History Week. They were guided by Mr. Gerry Davis who is the school administrator and grandfather of Keelin Davis, in 3rd class. It was a really informative tour and everyone really enjoyed it.
We were delighted to learn today that Cameron Jackson has done St Brigid’s proud in the All Ireland Schools Irish Nationals.
For the under 9 category, each child entered two strokes..all the training, hard work and passion paid off in the end and he won the silver in 50mtr freestyle & bronze in the backstroke. We couldn’t be prouder!
Cameron Jackson who is in 3rd class is representing St Brigids in the Irish national swimming schools finals on Sunday. Unfortunately he was the only qualifier from St. Brigids at Leinster qualifiers in Oct. All the top underage swimmers in Ireland compete in this tournament & qualifying for it is an achievement in itself. He will be racing in the 50 meter freestyle & back crawl. His Dad says he has been absolutely flying in training & he has a really good chance in qualifying out of his heat into the final 10 in both disciplines. The competition including heats & finals are on in NAC on this Sunday. We all wish him well and hope he has a great tournament.
