A MASSIVE WELL DONE to all of the girls from 5th & 6th class in their musical production Alice in Wonderland last week.
They did their parents, their teachers and indeed their whole school very proud. Everyone commented on how professional they were and how they shone like stars every night! Here's a photo slideshow of the night. Thanks to Sheila & Ms. O' Toole for taking these fantastic photos!
Shadowing activities in Room 16
The girls in both 5th classes are reading lots of books in conjunction with Children's Books Ireland in a Shadowing process. The girls in R.16 created miniature houses representing the houses of Lilliput in Gulliver's Travels. Everything is so tiny it gives a great impression of how big we are in comparison!
Update from Room 15 (4th Class)
We've been very busy in Room 15 since our last update. Read below and have a look at our slideshow to see what's been going on.

Update from Room 14
Room 14 are having a busy April!
As well as taking part in the school musical, Well Being week and the CBI Book of the Year shadowing programme with Ms. Phelan's 5th class, we are also participating in Sow and Grow initiative. Below you can see our seedlings popping up!
You can also see the parachutes we made for an Energy and Forces Science experiment and our trip to the 1916 exhibition in the Botanic Gardens.
We are now getting ready for Active Schools Week! Phew! :-)
Swim for a Mile Challenge
Ms. Brady and Ms. Coggins completed the 'Swim for a Mile' challenge in the National Aquatic Centre on the 8th of April. The girls in St.Brigid's managed to raise an amazing €760 in sponsorship. They showed great enthusiasm and support for the event and eagerly tracked the fundraising progress on the chart in the hall. This money all goes towards the School Fund in St Brigid's to cover the day to day costs of running the school. Well done to all involved.
The 5th & 6th class girls were rehearsing with the sound and lighting today and all is going really well. The hard work that we've put into rehearsing since last November has really paid off........ and the big performances are nearly here.
If you haven't got your ticket for the show there are still a few left so get them quick! There will also be some available at the door on the night too.
Remember the show starts at 7pm and is in Our Lady of Dolour's Hall under the church on Wednesday 20th, Thursday the 21st and Friday 22nd of April.
We look forward to seeing you there on the night and hope you will enjoy the journey down the rabbit hole with Alice and cast.
Well-Being Week in Room 14
Room 14 enjoyed a wonderful Well-Being Week and thoroughly reaped the benefits of a calm and positive classroom.
We enjoyed a lovely walk in the Botanic Gardens and did some meditation in the sensory garden. We painted and discussed our feelings during Art class. We also had a great time making our funny fruit people on 'Fruit Friday' before ending the week on a lovely, calm note with our yoga session.
Some girls discovered that they liked meditation and mindful colouring so much that we have decided to continue this good work for the rest of the year with 'Meditation Monday.' We have also kept our quiet space and our Compliments Wall in operation and we write positive messages into our happy pink box.
Have a look below at some of our happy memories! :-)
Smoothie Making in 4th, Room 12
We made healthy fruit smoothies in Room 12 as part of our activities for 'Well-being Week'. Between our meditating, yoga and fruit eating, we made a healthy start to what will hopefully be a bright and sunny spring/summer term!
Wellness week in St. Brigid's
We have had a great week this week in school learning about how to have a healthy body, healthy mind and healthy diet. Positive quotes at the start of every day were a wonderful way to begin each day. Each class got the opportunity to have a relaxing yoga class during the week. Friday was fruit/veg day to encourage an extra piece of fruit and veg in our lunch boxes.
Some girls in 5th class R.16 created the wonderful characters above using various pieces of fruit and vegetables.
Finally, a quote to emphasise the importance of participation in our various activities which help us to be healthy in mind and body!
