Cheerios Childline Breakfast
St. Brigid's have registered for the Cheerios Childline Breakfast again this year. It will run from the 17th-21st October. Children will be asked to bring in a plastic bowl and spoon on a specific day. We are suggesting to children to bring in a donation of €2 for Childline.
We are also running a competition, were people can guess how many cheerios are in the jar. The jar will be kept inside the front door each morning next week. People are welcome to take a guess for 20c.
The winner will win some Cheerios and a surprise. Winner announced on Friday 21st October.

On October 10 the 6th class girls went to a moons workshop in completion of their Space Week projects. This moons workshop introduced and explained 10 moons in our solar system, most of which had never been heard of before. After the introduction to the moons, the girls got an opportunity to draw their favourite moon, and what an excellent job they made of this. The workshop concluded with a short documentary on the moon known to us all...earth's moon!
Bia I Rang a Cúig!
Room 14 were busy rolling up their sleeves and cooking up a storm last week as they explored the theme of 'Bia' as Gaeilge. Delicious desserts were the order of the day (but don't worry we ate all of our healthy lunches too)! The girls did a great job translating their yummy recipes into Irish and should be proud of the effort they made to speak the language so well.
Here's a small selection of some of our work! Well done everyone- maith sibh! ;-)
St. Brigid's would like to wish Kathleen, our longest serving member of staff, a happy retirement. Kathleen has been a member of our staff since 1980.
Although, the children may never have met Kathleen, they always knew that she had been in their classroom, as she left the place immaculate.
We hope you enjoy your retirement and come visit us soon.
Football Team Update
Huge congratulations to the football team who have reached the semi -final of their Cumann na mBunscol league. They had a great game yesterday and we wish them the very best of luck against Garristown next week.
Also check out our new training tops in the pictures below that arrived yesterday just in time for our big game. We love them.
We recently asked all the classes to dress up in a particular colour/theme and took some photographs. We have now put the photos together in a wonderful colourful calendar. The calendar runs from September 2016 to August 2017 and we have included school holidays and significant school dates on the calendar. The calendars are now on sale in the school for €10. So get yours quick before they're all sold out.
This week we celebrate Space Week. Here are two cool websites to learn lots about Space and the planet we live on.
Space Week in 6th class R. 16
The girls in R.16 are enjoying Space Week in their class this week. They created a magnificent solar system for a wall display, created what their perceptions of Martians are, and are involved in the Tara Moon Project, a nationwide project looking at the moon. On Mon next they will go to the Axis to learn more about moons and design some themselves. Further study this week will focus on Mars, and what the Martian landscape looks like.
St. Brigid's Basketball Team
The basketball team for this year started the Dublin mini basketball league here in St. Brigid's on Thursday last. Our opposition was Burrow N.S. from Sutton. After a great start which saw the girls leading 6-2, it was Burrow who finished the winners by a very slight margin of two points. Well done to the players, the scorekeeper, timekeeper and supporters.
We play St. Brigid's Wellmount in their school this Wednesday.
