School Calendar


St. Brigid’s N.S. has received many awards over the years.

Each year since school year 2007-2008, we have received a Discover Primary Science Award for Science and Maths.

During the 2010-2011 school year we received a School of Excellence Award from Waterford IT for Co-Operative Teaching and In-Class Support. Since then we have received a similar award for teaching in the areas of Maths, English, Science and History. We were awarded the Junior Entrepreneur Flag in 2016. And in the 2016-2017 school year we received the School of Excellence Award for our work in the school garden.

We have also won the schools award in the Carlow Pride of Place Competition on four occasions in recent years. And we have attained the Green School status and are now working towards our 6th Green Flag. We will be working on Global Citizenship. To date we have flags for Litter & Waste, Energy, Water, Transport and Biodiversity.

In 2018 we received the Active School Flag and the Digital Schools Award. We were also thrilled our school won the award for the best large school for the work the pupils entered for Art, Handwriting, Poetry and Essays in the Tullow Show Competition.
