About Our School

Scoil Bhríde has 24 Mainstream class teachers, 8 + teachers in Learning Support, 10 Special Needs Assistants and 2 teachers for children with autism. We are also delighted to have more than 655 wonderful children here each day. There is also a preschool with a staff of 3 teachers on site.

Most new information is referenced in the School News page and may be available elsewhere on the site. Of particular interest are the Web Links of Interest and General Parent Info – both on the Parents Page and of course, School Policies.

The original school was built in 1950. It was built as a four-roomed building, three classrooms and a cookery room. Obviously, this building did not suffice for very long and the first of five prefabricated classrooms were added in 1967. In 1976/77 the school was extended. Four new classrooms, a general purpose room, an office and staff room were built.

In September 2011 we moved into our brand new school.

The school teaches the Department of Education & Skills prescribed curriculum in an innovative and creative manner. Our School Motto is “Obair agus Áthas”. We have won many awards in the areas of drama, science, technology, sport and music.

We hope you enjoy your visit.
