We celebrated the Hindu Festival of Diwali. It is a festival of lights that celebrates new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil.
Our school mission statement is positive and inclusive one:
Every child in our school will be encouraged and facilitated to reach their full potential as individuals, educationally and emotionally, in all aspects of their life. We promote a multi-cultural ethos and respect for difference.
We have recently re-designed a new school crest, with input from children, teachers and parents. This also echoes our mission statement, recognising and reflecting the many aspects of education, learning to respect one another, to nurture all intelligences and aptitudes, with a strong sense of spirituality at its core.
Our School Motto is: Together let’s live for today and learn for tomorrow!
Our school ethos continues to reflect the Christian values of the Holy Faith Sisters, who were founded in 1867. We are now managed under the patronage of Diarmuid Martin, Archbishop of the Dublin Diocese. As such, we adhere to the SCHEDULE OF A CATHOLIC SCHOOL, which
…. aims at promoting the full and harmonious development of all aspects of the person of the pupil: intellectual, physical, cultural, moral and spiritual, including a living relationship with God and with other people.
In St. Brigid’s S.G.N.S. we cater for pupils of all faiths and none.
