About St.Brigid's NS

Principal’s Welcome

As Principal I wish you a very warm welcome to St.Brigid’s NS, Ballysax! We are part of Suncroft Parish and our school is located at the heart of the local community. We provide families with an excellent education delivered by a wonderful team of teachers in welcoming facilities, and we have a proud history dating back to 1839!

At St. Brigid’s National School, we seek to enable each child to develop his or her potential in a caring, harmonious environment. We celebrate the lives of each and every child in our care by valuing and nurturing their strengths and talents and by channelling their enthusiasm and energy into productive learning experiences. We are a Catholic School and we promote healthy attitudes of care, kindness and inclusion in the children. We foster respect for the diversity of values, beliefs, traditions, languages and ways of life in society. We welcome children of all faiths and none into our school. Each child, and staff member, is a valued member of our school community and we set forth each day to do our best and to encourage each other to do the same.
