Cross Country Running

On Tuesday 20th March, 24 girls from 3rd-6th class headed off to Porterstown Park to take part in the third day of the Fingal Cross Country series. It was a lovely , bright , crisp, cold sunny day – ideal for cross country running.

Once again , we had fantastic performances from all of the Scoil Bhríde girls with each one of them putting in a huge effort and showing great improvement since their last outing.

Outstanding performances from Adele Anigala and Aimee Corcoran (3rd class) who finished a superb race in 4th place and 2nd place respectively , Ola Kuzma (4th class) who finished in a very good 6th place and Aoife Corcoran (5th Class) who paced herself excellently to take the lead in the final stretch and win the race in style.

Well done to all!

The final event in this series will be held in Santry Park on Tuesday 10th April.

Keep up the running during the Easter Holidays, girls.

Rugby Coaching

Today was the first session of rugby coaching for 5th and 6th Classes. They really enjoyed this wonderful game!

A good time to start rugby, as we think of the Irish Rugby Team preparing for their historic attempt to win the Grand Slam in England on St. Patrick’s Day! Well done to the team for winning the Six Nations Championship and the very best of luck on Saturday.

The girls in Scoil Bhríde will be shouting for the Boys in Green on St. Patrick’s Day!

Flying Fit in Fingal!

Over the last few weeks, girls from 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class have been training really hard and making a great effort to improve their fitness. On Tuesday 27th, the girls from Scoil Bhríde Cailiní braved the freezing weather conditions to take part in the  cross country running event in Porterstown Park.

 It was an extremely successful day and we had incredible performances from every girl from 3rd to 6th class!

Our 3rd class girls kicked the day off in style with a brilliant 300 metres run.  Our very own Aimee Corcoran finished in a wonderful 2nd place! Well done Aimee!

The girls in 4th class were next in the 400 metres run and we had several top ten finishes!

Then it was the turn of our 5th class girls running in the 500 metres event. There were some terrific performances. Special congratulations must go to Aoife Corcoran who finished in First Place with a superb run.

The 6th class finished the day off in impressive fashion, running 600 metres in very snowy conditions!

Well done to all the girls involved!

A great day was had by all. A special thank you to Mr. McCrudden who has been training the girls in all sorts of weather over the last few weeks. A big thank you also to Ms. McKay and Ms. O’Reilly who accompanied the girls to the event and and gave them great support and encouragement. We look forward to another cross country run on the 20th of March in Porterstown Park! Every girl is welcome!

Tuesday 6th March

A walking path has been cleared to give access to the schools for tomorrow, Tuesday 6th March. The more people who can walk to school, the better. This will be the safer option.  If a parent feels that they must drive in to the campus, please continue through on the one way system, exiting the school campus at the Castleknock Road. PLEASE DO NOT ENDANGER OTHER PEOPLE by turning in the church carpark. This will cause mayhem. 

Confirmation will be on tomorrow. The Mass will be at 10.00 o’clock. All the arrangements made for last Wednesday still stand, but at one hour earlier.

MONDAY 5th MARCH

Parents and teachers: Currently (5.15pm Sunday), there is NO SAFE ACCESS to the school and we must remain closed tomorrow, Monday 5th.

However, a further inspection will take place very early tomorrow morning and IF the situation has improved, we will open. Arrival times will be flexible if this is the case. I will text all parents in the morning.

If we are unable to open tomorrow and if the snow is not melting quickly enough, I will ask for as many adults as possible to come to the school with shovels to help us clear what is left, so that we can open safely on Tuesday. A further text will issue in this case!

As of now, Confirmation will be as re-scheduled for Tuesday 6th March at 10.00am.

Parent Seminars

CYBER SAFETY AWARENESS

A very successful cyber safety awareness seminar for parents and children took place recently in the school. During the day, the children from 1st to 6th Classes had their own seminar on the dangers posed by many aspects of the internet – in particular by social media sites. In the evening many parents came to the school hall for the Parent Seminar. Many parents were shocked at just how dangerous it is to allow a child to use the internet without the supervision of their parents. The internet is a wonderful resource but children need to be protected from the dangers it poses to their safety. The key message? Talk to your children about the internet and monitor their use of apps and social media sites.   

STAY SAFE PROGRAMME

The ‘Stay Safe Programme‘ is a national programme aimed at giving children the skills they need to keep themselves safe from dangerous situations and how to get help if they find themselves in a situation that makes them feel uncomfortable.  The programme has been in use for many years and has recently been modernised. There will be an information evening for PARENTS on Wednesday 21st February to highlight some of the new features of the Stay Safe Programme. At least one parent from each family is encouraged to attend. Shortly after that evening, teachers will be implementing the Stay Safe Programme in class. The children will bring home worksheets and will talk about what they have learned in school. Again the key message is to talk to your children – and to listen when they talk to you.
