Special Mass for School Communities - Wed 8th April We would like to announce that tomorrow morning Fr Paul Farren, Director of the Catechetical Centre is offering the 10am Mass tomorrow, for our school communities. This will acknowledge the end of Term 2. Fr Paul will also offer this Mass for past pupils of all schools who are currently on the frontline keeping us safe from the COVID-19 virus. Fr Paul will highlight the importance of the liturgies over the coming days, encouraging children, young people and families to engage with Holy Week. I would be grateful if you could inform pupils, parents, staff, Boards of Governors/Management, whole school community and post on your various Social Media sites. God bless and I look forward to joining with you all at this celebration of the Eucharist.

School Council

 
 
 
 
 
 

Class and School Council at St. Brigid's P.S

 

At St. Brigid's we are proud to have pupil representatives that take part in class and school council meetings. These councils are in place so that pupils have a voice and are involved in decisions about the school that affect them. Through the class councils, all pupils have the opportunity to raise issues, share ideas and take part in discussions that involve all of their classmates in reaching a democratic solution. Wider issues that arise at class council council are discussed further at school council, this ensures that as many pupil voices as possible are heard. Pupils at St. Brigid's know that this is their school and their thoughts and ideas matter.

The school council is about:

  • Learning to work together
  • Learning about democracy
  • Learning how to play a positive role in our community

The school council's job is to involve everyone, not to do everything. It needs to get everyone:

  • Finding things they want to change
  • Coming up with ways to make them better
  • Putting those ideas into action
  • Seeing what works (evaluating)

How does our class council work?

  • Our whole class has a meeting every half term
  • The class council discuss important matters
  • The class then vote for two important things to take to the school council to be discussed
  • The school council members then report back to the class
