Our new Junior Infants are to be congratulated for settling into St. Brigid’s so well.
‘Independence Day’ Thursday 12th September 2019 was a big day for them.
From now on Junior Infants will remain in school until 1.40 pm.
To mark this milestone Mrs.Costello gave the boys and girls a special pencil. Thanks to Carol and Tara in the office for organizing these.
Over the summer the school got two ovens. The children now can learn to BAKE and COOK in SCHOOL. Ms. Cuffe’s 2nd class made fairy cakes. This work was integrated with work in English. The children wrote about what they would do in procedural writing. The smell was delicious. The children were excited. We didn’t see finished fairy cakes as they didn’t last long.
You can see a slide show of photos from this work HERE
Thank you to all who supported the fundraising SPONSORED WALK on Friday 28th September, 2018. This is a fundraiser for the school. We were lucky in the weather and the children enjoyed the day. Thank you to the many parents who helped supervise and those who organised the event. Thank you too, to Super Valu, Greystones who sponsored water for the walkers.
Infants took a short route. First and Second took another. Classes from Third class up walked to Greystones United Football Club.
Thursday 13th September, 2018 was INDEPENDENCE DAY for our new Junior Infants. We are all very proud of the girls and boys. They were so grown up and in the morning, they walked into their classrooms all by themselves. It was also their first full school day.
The day ended with some memorable surprises organised by our principal, Mrs. Costello. Each child went home with a balloon. Thank you to Tara, Carol and Helena who worked hard to make sure sixty balloons were ready for distribution.
The infants were amazed to find a Dale Farm ice cream van in the school yard. Thank you to Ms. Carwood and her sister Amanda, a past pupil of the school for organising this. The Infants enjoyed their ice creams.
However the fun did not stop there. All students from Senior Infants to Sixth came out to the yard where they too were treated to an ice cream. The photos in this slide show are of students from Senior Infants to Sixth enjoying their ice creams. Many, many thanks to all those involved in this great day. Thank you to Ms. Curley for taking the photos and recording this happy day.
