Active Schools Week 2017
Happy Active Schools Week everyone. We all know how important physical activity is for our health, our energy levels and our well being in general. We try to stay active in St. Brigid's every week and as an Active School we will make a special effort this week. Parents can check out what we'll be up to by following us on twitter @
We're going to do circuit training on Jersey Day, Drop everything and dance during class and have some taster sessions of frisbee with a coach from Ultimate frisbee.
Thanks to the teachers and students on the Active Schools Committee for their help this week.

Food in Season - Room 9
Different foods are 'in season' in Ireland at different times. Asparagus ripens in the spring, summer brings berries, apples follow in the autumn and root vegetables such as carrots are at their best during the winter. We have been learning about what time of year certain fruits and vegetables are in season in Ireland. We had fun identifying a selection of fruit and vegetables in a game called 'What am I?'
14 girls from the two 6th classes recently ran the Great Ireland Junior Run in the Phoenix Park. They ran 2.5km along with hundreds of other young children. They ran really well and had a great run. All received lovely medals as a memento of their run. Well done to all!
Welll done Lexi...
A big well done to Lexie from Room 4 who got First place in the Rugrats European Dance Masters which took place recently. Here she is with her teacher Ms Brady and her very impressive trophy!
We are delighted that our Easter Fair was such a success! We want to say a big thank you to everyone who came out and supported the school on the day or contributed by donating or voluneeteering. Lots of bargains were had, lots of brillant prizes were won on the amazing Wheel of Fortune, and lots of Easter treats were eaten. St Brigid's artistic ability was clear with the amazing designs in our Best Dressed Egg Competition! We raised lots of money for the school and had great fun too. None of this would have been possible without the work of our Parent's Association who made sure that everything ran so smoothly on the day.
3rd Class (Room 15) Update
Have a look at the video below to see what we've been up to in Room 15 since January. It's been a very busy term and we had lots of fun too with Multi-Cultural Week, Spring Clean Week, our values work, Seachtain na Gaeilge, World Book Day, Easter and much more.
Well done on all your hard work and we look forward to our last term:-).

Spring Clean is Here!
Over the past week, the pupils of St. Brigid's have been busy making Glasnevin a beautiful and tidy place to be. Some classes concentrated on the school grounds and the area immediately around our school, some went to Tolka Park and some others did their clean up in Johnstown Park. Well done to eveyone involved and many thanks to our super parents who supplied us with Dublin City Council equipment.
See can you spot yourself in the slideshow! :-)
