If you google the phrase ‘Summer Slump’ or ‘Summer Slide’ you will see how research shows that children can slip back academically over the summer holidays. Children who don’t read during summer can slip back by two to three months in their reading achievement. For the last number of years Wicklow Libraries have run a Summer Reading Challenge at Greystones Library. GREAT NEWS! It is running again this year starting on 14th June. This is a wonderful opportunity to keep up reading over the summer and avoid the ‘Summer Slide.’

LOOK! With Covid restrictions in place, parents and friends of St. Brigid’s see much less of what goes on here. We have been as busy as we ever are and here is a short slide show to show you some of what we have been doing in the Summer Term. Click on THIS link to see it. We hope you enjoy it.
