Aistear in room 6
Our theme for Aistear this month was 'The Doctor's Surgery'. We had great fun pretending to be patients, doctors and nurses. Take a look at our photos below!
Monday the 1st of February is St. Brigid's Day or Lá Fhéile Bríde. It is also the start of Catholic School's Week.
We will be holding a Memorial mass for our former Principal, Ms. O' Brien at 1.00pm in Our Lady of Dolours Church.
Ms. O' Brien's family, retired staff and a number of guests have been invited. All classes from 1st -6th class will also attend. If any parents are available and wish to attend the mass, they will be very welcome.
Make sure to check out the super Green-Schools notice board! It tell us all about our new Energy theme, it helps us to remember what items we recycle in St. Brigid's and it also tells us all about the different nationalities we have in our school.
On the left are our new 3rd class members. We welcome them warmly! On the right you can see some of our super 4th class helpers. Everyone plays their part!

As part of the project work St. Brigid's are working on in recognition of the centenary of the 1916 Rising, 5th class in room 16 have been researching and exploring the role of women in the 1916 Rising. We are particularly interested in the Gifford Sisters, especially Grace Gifford who married one of the 1916 leaders, Joseph Mary Plunkett, hours before he was executed for his part in the Rising.

5th & 6th classes have been busy preparing for our School Musical Production this year 'Alice in Wonderland'.
Rehearsals take place at lunchtimes most days and after school on Wednesdays from 2.35-3.35pm. Below you will find a timetable to download for January to March. You can also visit the 'Musicals' page of the website to view it online.
The rehearsal sessions are split into scenes and songs so it is the responsibility of each student to know find out the days they must attend. They may not be needed after school every week. Each class has a copy of the timetable and you can also download it below too if you want a copy at home.
Everybody has shown great enthusiasm so far and really gotten into character for their roles in the Musical. Keep up the great work and soon we will be rehearsing without our scripts!

Happy New Year!
