School Closed Friday June 3rd

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.

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.

The Book Fair

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming back to St. Brigid’s  after an absence of three years! It will run from Tuesday May 3rd  to Friday 6th.  All pupils will visit the fair early next week to select and order a favourite book.  The Book Fair is the currently the  only source of new stock for the Library every year. The more books we sell, the more books the school gets for the library. Thank you for your support.

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
