April 2013 - Basketball referees
Some of the 5th and 6th class girls in St. Brigid's G.N.S. undertook a pilot ref course under the direction of the BI national committee for primary schools and the NRC in mini-basketball earlier this year, and it has been a great success! Eight of these girls refereed their first game against Scoil Mobhi yesterday and did really well! All participants on the course, pictured, have been really enthusiastic and interested in developing their refereeing skills. With interest like theirs, there is great hope for the referees of the future. Check out the link below to see the girls involved!

They played some tough matches and reached the semi-final of the shield in their division (Corn Austin Finn). Unfortunatey it was not our day but the girls did their very best and we are very proud of the effort they put in. Well done on all your hard work girls!

Ballygall Credit Union decided to run a Quiz for all the schools in their catchment area. St. Brigid's girls were delighted to take part in the first ever Ballygall Credit Union Quiz. We had a total of eight teams from our school. The girls were delighted when they heard they got 3rd place, the girls were even happier to discover that they were 'Runners Up' and were amazed when they were called out as the 'Winners' as well.
The winners will now enter stage 2 of the competition and compete againsts 25 other Credit Union finals. We wish them every success.
