A Message from the Principal

A Message from Mrs. Costello upon her appointment to St. Brigid’s NS, as principal, September 2017.

Dear Parents,

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.

Le meas,

Máire Costello,



A Message from Mrs. Costello for new year 2020.

Here we are again at the start of another New Year and with it comes all the excitement that a New Year brings.

This New Year presents us with new opportunities and new adventures. It is a time to unfold new horizons and realise new dreams, a time to rediscover the strength and faith within us, a time to rejoice in simple pleasures and gear up for new challenges.

St. Brigid’s challenge for 2020 is to find unique and innovative ways to create opportunities that make our school a place where all children enjoy learning, develop strong relationships, and continue to grow each day socially, emotionally, and academically. I have no doubt that we are up to the challenge thanks to the continued support and dedication of staff and parents alike.

Our school is truly a community school and I look forward to what lies ahead for us as a school community in 2020. I wish you all peace, joy, hope and happiness throughout the New Year.

Máire Costello
