Saint Brigid’s National School, is a primary school situated in the middle of Greystones, Co. Wicklow. Our mission is to provide the highest quality education for all our children in a happy, safe and stimulating Christian environment, focusing on their academic, social, personal, moral and spiritual development to help the achieve their advancement.

Fundraising Committee

The Fundraising Committee meets and discusses possible events which will hopefully attract the parents’ attention and provide a way to meet other parents in a social atmosphere, gathering much needed funds for the school.  Funds raised are used to enhance our children’s total school experience. We try to gauge the mood of the various activities which we bring to the table.  They are then presented to the Parents’ Association for further discussion. Approval of Board of Management is then sought.

It is a great way to meet other parents. Children come to realise the effort that goes into making the school the success it is.

Copper Friday on 2nd February 2018 was a phenomenal success raising an amazing 2,417 euro. There was great excitement in the school. Children brought in coppers from home. Room 20 brought in the most amount of money and got a prize from Auntie Nellie’s. This time the money raised will be used to buy resources for Aistear. This is an infant curriculum where the children learn through play. Many thanks to all who participated in this great fund raising initiative. The by product was all the fun that we had that day.

Dear Parents, The PA together with Ms Costello and all the Staff invite the children to celebrate in St. Brigid’s 1st Christmas Jumper or Christmas Accessory Day on Thursday 21st December as a fundraiser for the school. We are suggesting each child donate €2 or whatever you may wish on the day. If the children do not wish to participate in this event, they are free to wear their tracksuits. We are aware that Christmas is a very expensive time for families, so please do not feel under any pressure to go out and buy a Christmas Jumper. With your help, we hope the children and staff will enjoy a fun day and we thank you for your support.

Our ever busy Parents’ Association organised a Halloween Bake Sale to raise money for a defibrillator for the school. The defibrillator is now in place beside the principal’s office. Well done to the fundraising committee and many thanks to everyone who helped or contributed.

We will issue a school survey in the next few weeks to assess the support for our existing methods of fundraising and hopefully get some fresh ideas and feedback.
