We wish our camogie team the very best of luck in the finals of the Cumann na mBunscol League on Tuesday June 9th. They played a tight semi-final last week and we're so happy that they won. St. Brigid's is very lucky to have reached the finals in Croke Park in both football and camogie this year. We wish them the very best of luck. Our panel of 20 is made up of girls from 5th and 6th class. A big thank you also to Na Fianna for the use of their club for training and always facilitating us for home games.
4th, 5th and 6th classes will travel to Croke Park to support our team. Get your banners ready everyone.
We had great fun taking part in this years sports day. There was an obstacle course, an egg and spoon race and a bean bag on the head race. We got crisps and a chocolate bar and then went home. Luckily the rain stayed away for the day.
Second class made their First Holy Communion on Saturday 23rd May 2015. It had been raining all week and the children were all very worried that it would rain on the day. We said our prayers each day and prayed for good weather. Our prayers were certainly answered because Saturday was a beautiful sunny day. The girls were all beautiful and had big smiles on their faces throughout the day. On Tuesday, the children came into school to show off their dresses, here are some snaps of them....
To celebrate our First Holy Communion we had a Pamper Pyjama Party. We had a chocolate fountain with marshmallows. We decorated our cupcakes with pink icing, flowers and pearls. We got our nails done and had a fantastic fun day.
It is celebration time in St. Brigid's as we received our Green Flag in the Helix last Tuesday, 19th May! We were the only school to be awarded a 6th Green Flag on the day so well done to everyone involved- remember, together we can make a difference!
As our motto says, 'We Come Together to Protect the World Forever!'

Chualamar sceal i rang Gaeilge faoi rang a sé agus bhí lá gan éide scoi acu. Mar sin, bhíomar gléasta suas ar maidin ar scoil mar atá sa phictiúr thuas. Bhí eadaí ildaite orainn. Cé go bhfuil na laethanta saoire an tsamhraidh ag teacht, bhí buicéad agus spád ag roinnt de na cailíni freisin, agus spéaclaí gréine ar chailíni eile. Bhaineamar taitneamh as an lá seo!
Mrs. Phelan's 6th class had really good fun at the Irish Aid workshop.We split into 2 groups and half watched a video while half learned a song called 'bring in the washing'. We also played the bongos and dressed up in national clothes.We learned about a girl named Memory who is 18 and lives in a very poor village. She gets up at 5 in the morning and makes her little sisters breakfast and then she does some chores and goes to school. Though she doesn't have things like wifi and electricity, she and her family are very happy. Memory wants to do well to get a good job to help support her family.
6th class R. 16, were delighted to receive an invitation to attend the CBI Book of the Year awards recently.

Several of their favourite Irish authors were also at the ceremony.Two girls, Sama and Gunjan from R.16 were thrilled to meet their favourite author, Sarah Crossan, author of Apple and Rain!
