Christmas is Coming……..

Congratulations to Neepa Khan from Fifth Class whose picture, Santa Has a Problem! has been chosen as this year’s card for Christmas. Neepa’s picture caught our eye because of the great drawing and the funny conversation between Santa and his reindeer. As is our tradition, the greetings on the inside of our card are representative of the many home languages of our children.  So let’s send these cards all over the world and show what a terrific diversity exists in our school.  These wonderful cards can be purchased in the school at the terrific price of €5 for 12 cards while stocks last. 

Visit from a Poet

Tony Curtis is an Irish poet who paid a visit to the children in Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní) today. Tony is a great communicator and has a terrific way with words. 

From Shakespeare to Bob Dylan (and others in between!) there was lots of singing, clapping and laughing from the children as he sang songs and recited poems for and with them. The children joined in enthusiastically and they really enjoyed the visit. 

See Tony’s website tonycurtisirishpoet.com for examples of his work. 

Parent Teacher Meetings

Parent – Teacher Meetings will take place in the week beginning Monday November 14th. The bulk of the meetings will be on Wednesday 16th November. 

All parents are encouraged to meet with the teachers involved in the education of their daughters. Class teachers, Learning Support teachers and Language Support teachers are available to meet with parents, as is the Principal.  This is an important part of the year for parents, teachers and, of course, for the children. 

Each meeting will be scheduled for approximately ten minutes. Please try to arrive punctually and to stay within your allocated time slot. If you need to discuss something important that will take longer than this, please arrange to make a further appointment with your daughter’s teacher.  Your daughter’s teacher will be in touch with you directly to arrange a mutually convenient time for the Parent-Teacher meeting.

Joseph Driessen Seminar


We have been very fortunate to have been able to book a seminar for parents on Tuesday 11th October in the school hall with JOSEPH DRIESSEN.

Joseph Driessen is a renowned speaker who gives really good advice on best practice for raising children. He will be here from 7.00 to 9.00pm on Tuesday to speak to parents about raising daughters.

This is guaranteed to be an interesting evening for parents.

There is no charge for this event. I strongly urge parents to make every effort for at least one parent to attend this seminar. It will be time well-spent!
