Puppet Show At Scoil Bhride

Moon and Sixpence Puppet Theatre visited the school last Tuesday and put on two fantastic shows of Red Riding Hood (Junior classes) and Over the Rainbow (Senior classes). Each show was thoroughly enjoyed by all with some teachers getting a special mention by the puppets – even Mr. Duffy! Thanks to Moon and Sixpence as well as all of the children and teachers for their cooperation.

Crazy Hair Day

Scoil Bhríde held a ‘Crazy Hair Day’ on the 16th of March. This fantastic fundraising idea was created by one of our own pupils in Scoil Bhríde. The money raised from holding the event will be used by our 6th class teacher Mr. Casey while he is in Uganda this summer. He is setting up links from our school to a school in Uganda. The proceeds will be spent on life-saving healthcare and school essentials such as pencils and books for children affected by HIV.

Proclamation Day

Proclamation Day was held on 15th March. We had a ceremony to raise the Irish Flag that was presented to us by the Defense Forces earlier in the school year to remember the 1916 Rising. We were very lucky to celebrate the day with local historian Mairead Evans who raised the flag with fellow member of the Historical Society in Edenderry Therese Abbott and Mariead’s daughter Fionnuala Doyle. Caitlin from 6th class read the Old Proclamation and Victoria from 5th class read the Proclamation for a New Generation which she composed herself. The staff and children sang the Song Grace followed by Ireland’s Call and Amhrán na bhFiann played by the school band.

World Book Day

World Book Day took place on Thursday the 3rd of March. All children were invited to dress up as their favourite character on the day. The children also participated in literacy activities based on their favourite books. It was great to see so many children interested in reading! A total of €479.40 was raised for our school library. A huge thank you to all those involved.

Enterprise Day

Enterprise day was held in Scoil Bhríde on Friday the 11th of March. Classes from 3rd to 6th class took part. It was an outstanding success with many very different business ideas on the day. It was a very enjoyable day for all of the students and parent. The judges had a very difficult job picking winners from the junior and senior section!
