Thought for the month (by AA Milne):

A HUGELY SUCCESSFUL SPONSORED WALK

October 17th was the perfect day for our sponsored walk. We had a great time exercising and getting fresh air and it was super to have so many of our mums, dads and grandparents with us. The best news is that we raised €3,000! We are so proud of this and would like to thank everyone for supporting us. A big thank you to Ms. McEvoy, Ms. Keogh and Jacinta for all their work in organising this event. We look forward to buying new resources for the school. Here are some snapshots of the walk. 

HALLOWEEN DISCO

The Parents Association invites all pupils to a spooktaculer Halloween fancy dress disco in the school hall on Friday October 25th from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. Cost of entry is €2 per pupil and there will be a tuck shop if children would like to buy treats. Children can dress up, have fun and show off their dance moves! 

SAMBA- BEST FUN EVER!

4th, 5th and 6th class had six weeks of Samba drumming lessons.  On the last day they all performed outdoors for the other pupils, their parents, grandparents and all who passed by the school! We have had Kieran Gallagher from Kada Ka Boom Arts giving these enjoyable, creative and skillful Samba lessons for three years and hope to continue working with him. Here are some photos of the super Samba performance and the audience who really enjoyed it! 

On October 10th, 2019 staff of Scoil Bhríde had fire safety training to ensure safe evacuation of all in the building in the event of a fire. Thanks to Terry from Masterfire Services of Monasterboice for the every informative and important training. Fire extinguishers,fire blankets & ladders are available from if you would like to purchase them.
