The girls in third class, room 10 had great fun learning their lines, organising costumes and designing props. They were a little nervous but still managed to put on a great show. Well done to all!
Today we had a visit from Finglas Fire Brigade. The firemen talked to us about fire safety and how the fire engine worked.
They showed us all of the special fire equipment and we even got to see the hoses work!Everyone got to have a look inside the fire engine too.
They also reminded everyone to go home and check their smoke detectors to keep fire safe.
On Wednesday 22nd we had a buddy bench delivered to the school. It was very exciting and RTE filmed the presentation. We then sang the lovely buddy bench song. led by the talented Rachel and BStarr. Niamh from 4th class (Room 15) also played a big part in this song and we're very proud of her. The bench is a really lovely idea and will be a great addition to our playground. We'd like to thank them both and Mandy for coming to visit. See below for the live version:-). Well done Niamh.
The girls in 5th class R. 16 visited the offices of Irish Aid to learn about the work Irish Aid does. An informative session about Tanzania saw the girls learn some of the Swahili language, sing some songs, and learn to play the drums whilst dressed in traditional dress called khangas.
A second session saw us learning about the 17 goals laid out by the United Nations to be achieved by 2030. An interesting thing to note is each person being asked where they would be in the year 2030. Definitely not in school!
We celebrated our end of year assembly on Friday. It was a great way to end a very exciting year in St Brigid's. There were 31 pupils who missed no days from school this year - what an amazing achievement! Ms O'Byrne presented them all with Perfect Attendance Certificates.
Ms Devlin, Ms Ryan and Ms Miley presented medals to the winners of our school football league.
We thanked all of those who make our school such a great place - our teachers, our SNAs, our cleaners, our Parents Association as well as Martina, David, Sheila and Patrick. We hope they all have a rest during the holidays.
We said goodbye to Sixth class who entertained us all with their graduation song. They have lots of happy memories of their time in St Brigid's school.
We wished Ms McGrath, Ms Freeman and Ms Edwards well as they start new jobs in Clondalkin, Cork and Dubai . We will miss them all next year!
On Friday 17th June our 3rd and 4th classes entertained us all by singing their wonderful 'Times Tables' songs! They were joined by musicians Peter, Claire and Stephen and all together they put on two great shows, firstly for our 1st, 2nd, 5th and 6th classes and then for their parents. Have a listen to some of the songs below...!
On the longest day of the year, we had our Summer Harvest day in 2016.
Every class was timetabled to go and pick some delicious organic vergetables from the garden.
Terry has been hard at work since our Harvest in August and there were
Have a look at some of the classes below as they harvest the vegetables.
During their last computer classes, 6th class were given the assignment of creating a Voki Avatar using www.voki.com to share their memories of their time in St.Brigid's.
They had great fun creating them. It was a challenge to get the computer generated voice to say what they wanted so we also had to learn how to type phonetically.
Overall it was great to reminisce on their time in primary school and what they were looking forward to in secondary school.
Have a listen to some of their Avatars below and you will find the rest on Ms. Edwards's Computer Class Blog.

A massive congratulations to 6th class on graduating after 8 years in primary school. We wish them the very best of luck in secondary school.
5th class from R.16 visited Fighting Words this morning to create their own story book. They were welcomed to the lovely location through a magic door, the password the girls created to get through the door was 'waffle, uniform, chicken'!!
Shane was the leader for the morning session, and led the class through the initial preparatory work of creating the characters and plot for the story. The girls decided on the title of 'The Jungle House' for their story.
Having worked on the initial story together they then worked on finalising the ending.
Finally they received a copy of the finished book, with their own photograph printed on the back!
