Catholic Schools Week was a very special week for us at Scoil Bhríde. The theme for the week was Catholic Schools: Families of Faith. This theme was developed on each of the five days of Catholic Schools Week. The daily themes were: Our Family at Home, Our School Family, Grandparents – A Special Part of Our Family, Our Parish Family and Our World Family. Catholic Schools Week was a wonderful opportunity to really celebrate the Catholic Ethos of Scoil Bhríde.

 

This beautiful piece of art was produced by Ms Healy’s 2nd Class as part of their work for Catholic Schools Week.

Grandparents’ Day was held on Wednesday, 30th of January as part of Catholic Schools Week. The day was a great success. The pupils from Third Class invited their grandparents to the school to listen to them singing some songs followed by refreshments and a chat in the hall. The singing was beautiful and we extend a big thank you to the Parents’ Association whose hard work contributed greatly to the success of the day. Thank you also to all the Grandparents who attended. Grandparents play a very important role in the lives of their grandchildren and we were very happy to have the opportunity to show you how much we appreciate all you do for your families!

 

 


 

We celebrated St. Brigid’s Day on the 1st of February. The pupils from Fifth Class prepared a beautiful and reverent prayer service celebrating the life of St Brigid and her many great works.

This term we welcomed Mr John Spillane to Scoil Bhríde. John is a singer/songwriter from Cork who performs traditional songs in English and Irish. The pupils worked very hard at learning all the words and it was wonderful to hear them singing along with John and his guitar. The highlight of the performance was our First Class Ukulele Band taking to the stage with John. Here is a sample of some of the songs we’ve learned – ‘I’ll tell me Ma’, ‘Trasna na dTonnta’, ‘Séamuisín’ and ‘The Rattlin Bog’.
