The old saying that you learn something new is very true at school and at St Brigid’s, children are encouraged to be at school every day that they can.
Of course children are sick occasionally and need to stay home from school, but good attendance is encouraged at all other times. In fact, good
attendance is rewarded in St. Brigid’s School with a monthly reward for all those who didn’t miss a day during that month. During the last school year,
this was very successful and most children got rewards for at least some months. Teachers also rewarded merits to children for good attendance records
and we hope that everyone will keep up the good efforts this year. in June the children who missed no days or just one day (pictured below) during the school
year got special awards. Mrs Quinn also made a special presentation to Chloe Mc Carthy, 6th Class who had a full attendance record for her entire 8 years
in the school. Well done Chloe and we hope you keep it up in secondary school.
Heritage in schools
Michael Moynihan, a history expert with the Heritage in Schools Scheme, visited the school on June 16th where he held workshops for all classes.
The theme for the older classes was the Easter Rising, while the younger children learned about the tragedy of the Titanic. Mr Moynihan brings History to life
for the children with a vast array of clothes, artifacts, weapons etc from the period being discussed. The children are allowed to handle, use and dress up in these items which they really enjoy.
