Our 6th classes took a break from Confirmation preparation last week to take part in the 20x20 campaign around the visibility of girls in sport and to mark International Women's Day. Both classes joined together to play football and do some circuits which they set up themselves. Check out our video below.
Well done everyone! #ShowYourStripes

6th Class had their graduation last night before they leave St. Brigid's next week. We're very sad to see them go but we wish them well as they start their new chapter. We would like to thank the girls for all their work and the huge contribution they made to school life in so many ways. We'll miss you lots girls. We would also like to thank their teachers Ms.Phelan and Ms. Mc Guigan for their great work all year and in preparation for the graduation.
Have a look at the video below for some pictures from this year and earlier times in St. Brigid's.
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.
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!
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.
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! :-)
Recently in Room 11 we have been learning about Mt. Everest. We read a story in our Reading Zone called "On Top of the World", all about Mt. Everest and Edmund Hillary who reached the summit of Mt. Everest on May 29th, 1953.
We began to wonder what it would be like to climb Mt. Everest and wished we could ask Edmund Hillary all about his adventures!
Luckily for us, even though Ms. McGrath couldn't provide an interview with Edmund Hillary, she could provide an interview with her friend Richard who had climbed to Everest Base Camp.
We compiled a long list of questions for Richard about his time climbing Mt. Everest; we wanted to know about the weather, what sort of equipment he needed, what food he ate and what training he had to do.
On Monday 21st September, Richard came to our class and we conducted our interview. He told us all about how he trained by climbing smaller mountains in Britain and Ireland, how his cup of tea froze over night on the side of Mt. Everest and how if you didn't get out of the way of a mountain yak, he would knock you off the mountain!! Richard showed us pictures of his climb to base came and brought in a Nepalese flag to show us.
Check out some of these pictures below!

We had a great visit to the Hugh Lane Gallery to learn about Francis Bacon, his paintings and the wonderful studio he worked in in London until he died in 1992. This studio was then brought to the Hugh Lane Gallery over a course of 6 years.
After viewing the studio, it was time for us to recreate our own mini studios. It was great fun doing this, and we came back to school with many colourful pieces of work.
