Tá fáilte ar ais roimh gach páiste agus gach chlann go dtí Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní).

Welcome back to all our girls and to every family. A special welcome goes to all the new children from Junior Infants to Sixth. We hope you’ll be very happy while you are a pupil at this school.


Room 13 Website Launch

Today saw the launch of the Room 13 Inquiry website. This was the product of three years hard work by many people. The girls in 4th, 5th and 6th Classes went to Draiocht for the launch. Two girls from Fifth Class – Ella Lamba and Neepa Khan – spoke to the assembly about the project and their experience of it. They represented the school very well and were very articulate ambassadors both for Scoil Bhríde and for Room 13. Afterwards, some of the other girls in Fifth, along with some representatives from Tyrellstown Educate Together school demonstrated the new website and did so very well indeed! The Mayor of Fingal County Council was there to represent the Council. She was very impressed with all the children and is very enthusiastic about Room 13. Many thanks to Fingal Co Co, to Julie Clarke the Arts Officer of Fingal, to Draíocht for supporting the work of the project in our school. Of course we were blessed with Orla Kelly, the wonderful artist-in-residence we have. It is important to acknowledge also the vision and work of previous members of staff of Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní), who embraced the project and got it off to such a good start. In particular, Ms. Renee Moran and Dr. Déirdre Kirwan who were there from the beginning of the project. 


Our very own art studio!

ROOM 13!

This year, in Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní), we are delighted to welcome our Artist in Residence, Orla Kelly. Orla will be working with every class to create our very own art studio, a space in which all of us, pupils, teachers and parents, can work and make great art. This is part of an international project known as Room 13. Each Room 13 studio facilitates the work of young artists alongside a professional adult Artist in Residence, providing an exchange of ideas, skills and experience across the ages.


In Room 13, pupils are encouraged to take the lead, be creative and to think for themselves. So far, every class, from Junior Infants to 6th, has enjoyed very creative art sessions with Orla. Ms Toomey’s 5th Class had the opportunity to visit Orla’s studio in Draíocht as well as Francis Bacon’s studio in The Hugh Lane Gallery in Parnell Square. This class is working tremendously hard to change an ordinary classroom into an extraordinary space that we will use as our studio.
