Saint Brigid’s National School, is a primary school situated in the centre of Greystones, Co. Wicklow. Our mission is to provide the highest quality education for all our children in a happy, safe and stimulating Christian environment, focusing on their academic, social, personal, moral and spiritual development to help them be the best they can be.

School Calendar

The Parents’ Association have very kindly offered to organise the school calendar for 2019 as it was such a big hit over the last couple of years. However, there is a new twist for this year.  Each month will be themed, and we are asking the children to dress in keeping with the theme for the month. Children born in January will dress in ‘winter clothes’ (hats, scarves etc.) children born in June will dress in ‘sports gear’ (rugby kit, tennis outfit, school tracksuit etc.) and so on.

Photographs for the calendar will be taken on TUESDAY 9th October in the school hall by the calendar committee from the Parents’ Association.

Themes for the year 2019 are detailed below.
