Besides the larger annual activities at St. Brigid’s National School, we also have smaller annual activies and occasional events worth mentioning.
13th June 2019: Publication Date School Magazine
The school magazine is important as it allows the children to publish their own written work – fulfilling curriculum aims. It is also an excellent fund raiser – bringing in €800 to €1000 each year. This money is used to purchase resources for classrooms. The publication date for this school year is dependent on senior pupils getting advertising and bringing it in before 3 June 2019. We cannot accept it any later than this date and publication of the Magazine will be canceled if necessary.
27th January to 2 February 2019: Catholic Schools Week
During Catholic Schools Week we will have a special Mass in St. Brigid’s Church on Saturday 2 February at 6.30pm – date to be confirmed. The school choir will be performing during Mass. And children will be involved in choir, readings, prayers and offertory procession. Please have the children wear their school uniform. All are invited.
