We had a very busy September in St. Brigid’s! We were delighted to welcome all the girls back and also welcome our new pupils to St. Brigid’s. Have a look at some of our September highlights.
The girls wore a variety of jerseys and sports tops to raise funds for the people of Afghanistan. The school was awash with colours and crests and most importantly, €1680 was raised for SAFE. This charity places particular emphasis on women’s education in Afghanistan. If you would like to find out further, look at their website: http://www.safeafghanistan.ie/
International Dot Day
International Dot Day is based on a story, ‘The Dot’ by Peter H. Reynolds. ‘The Dot’ is the story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark”. The story can be found here:
“Just make a mark and see where it takes you”
The school took the challenge to make their own mark and created their own dots. All the girls’ dots are displayed in the hall and now our hall is full of individual, colourful, unique dots!
European School Sports Day
European School Sports Day took place on the 24th of September. 3 million students take part in this day across Europe and this year, our school also took part! The girls spent the whole day being active in various ways. They also had a very active walk around the school grounds ending with the finishing line at the Millennium Garden which everybody enjoyed very much!
We returned to the garden to see what had grown over the summer while we were away. 4th Class harvested the wheat they planted and 1st Class dug up the potatoes they planted. Great fun was also had picking juicy blackberries which were loved by all!
Junior Infants also went down to discover our unique garden for the first time. They found many signs of Autumn!
