A Message from Mrs. Costello upon her appointment to St. Brigid’s NS, as principal, September 2017.
Let me start by saying, St. Brigid’s NS, Greystones has a well earned reputation and I know that the students, parents, staff and Board of Management have played an integral part in building this reputation.
The pursuit of excellence is at the heart of St. Brigid’s but in saying that, our school is about so much more than academic achievement. It’s about companionship, inclusion, friendship, minding each other, balance in life, music and singing, sport, art, debate, leadership, a sound work ethic, commitment and endeavour.
It has been said: ‘The essence of a great school is people working together, with a unity of purpose’
Students: whose energy and motivation are a driving force in the daily life of the school.
Staff: all of whom are willing to go the extra mile and deliver the best education possible.
Parents: who entrust their children to us here in St. Brigid’s and work in a positive partnership with the Board of Management and the Trustees.
As Principal, I have undertaken to provide an excellent teaching and learning environment, which enables all pupils to experience the joy of learning in a safe, inclusive and highly stimulating environment, and to be inspired to be lifelong learners. Together with the staff of St. Brigid’s, we strive to empower the students in our school ‘to be the best that they can be.’
Appreciating parents as the primary educators of the child, we encourage and support the involvement of parents in their child’s education and in the wider life of the school.
Thank you for visiting our school website. We hope will give you a window on school life in St. Brigid’s.
