St. Brigid’s has earned an ACTIVE SCHOOL FLAG. Well done to all, but most specially to Ms. Teehan, Ms. Woodcock and the Student Council, have led the school in doing a huge amount of work towards earning this Active School Flag. We had a very special guest in the school to help us raise the Active Flag. Paul Dunne, professional golfer paid a visit to the school. We were very happy to welcome him to St. Brigid’s and we were delighted he was able to help us raise our Active Flag. All the boys and girls gathered in the yard in their Christmas jumpers to watch Paul, Ms Costello, Tom Sherlock and the student council raise the flag. We entertained Paul with some Christmas songs as he chatted to a few of the children. Thanks very much to Paul for coming to visit us. You are welcome back anytime!
