Here in St. Brigid’s N.S we love being active. Pupils are encouraged to be as active as possible during break times. Senior classes have a colour coded set of skipping ropes, basketballs and soft balls to play with. Playground leaders organise fun and engaging games for the infant classes on the front yard. During the drier months the children love playing on the grass and practising their skills. We are very fortunate to have our ‘Raon Reatha’ walking track around the school playing area which is used every day by classes on a rota basis.
Our newest addition to our playground is the all weather equipment which has proved very popular and benefits the children by improving coordination and motor skills and by increasing muscle strength.
Some of our annual highlights include ‘The Witchy Walk’ and the ‘12K of Christmas’ Running challenge.
