On Monday 9th November we welcomed members from the Army in Athlone who presented us with the Irish Flag and the 1916 Proclamation. This was to commemorate the 1916 Rising. We were extremely lucky to have two members of Air Corps join us also who are parents of children in the school. These were Flight Sgt. John O’Brien and Sgt. Val Murray. The Proclamation was read out by Flight Sgt. John O’Brien and Jake from 5th class. Eoghan, a pupil from the Junior end of Scoil Bhríde, accepted the Irish Flag and Aoife, a pupil in the Senior end of the school, accepted the Proclamation on behalf of our school community
On Friday 6th November, children braved the cold weather to help plant daffodil bulbs in the school yard. Daffodils bring a nice burst of colour to our school environment and we are looking forward to watching them bloom in Spring.
Scoil Bhríde’s recent cake sale in aid of St Vincent de Paul raised €617.13 which was accepted by Rory Kennedy. A huge thank you to all the parents, children and staff that made this such a great success.

On Thursday 22nd October, author Liam Farrell visited the boys and girls in Scoil Bhríde. He spoke about writing a book and where the storyline comes from. His visit was a prize from Edenderry library for a DEAR time competition. All the children enjoyed listening to Liam re-tell some of his stories. A great time was had by all!
Friday the 23rd October 2015 saw all of the children come to school in Halloween fancy dress. There was an excellent display of creative costumes, with a very high standard set by everyone. A huge thank you to all of our children for participating in the fancy dress. A special thanks must also go to all the parents for their time and creative efforts in helping your children with their costumes.
We would like to thank all the children, teachers and SNAs who helped with the bake sale last Friday. We raised €630 for St. Vincent De Paul! Thanks for your time and co-operation! It’s a huge donation and we’re very proud to present this to them.
On Wednesday 21st October 2015, the boys and girls from First Class took part in our annual ‘Witches and Wizards Wood Walk’. The boys and girls had a great day. We saw lots of signs of Autumn including colourful leaves, acorns and nuts. We had a lovely walk around the woods and we finished up by feeding the ducks. Here are some pictures from our day.
Maths Week 2015 was a huge success! Children travelled to the Youth Café and Sweeney’s to spend their money and consolidate the money strand of the curriculum. Activities throughout the week demonstrated how maths can be both fun and useful. We had a bake sale on the Friday and the proceeds are going to St. Vincent De Paul. A big thank you to all the parents/guardians and children for their co-operation in making this a very enjoyable and educational week for all.
