Inside Out TY Bank

The ‘inside out’ TY Bank for St Brigid’s Secondary School was launched recently. The aim of the initiative is to help students in our school become savvy savers and learn about the importance of money and saving while also giving back to the school and its students. The theme of our bank is ‘wellness’. On Monday the bank was launched in the school canteen to a very excited welcome from both staff and students. During the year different events will be held to raise money for our school. For the launch the girls were able to set up a hamper to raffle off among their customers thanks to the generosity of the businesses in the town.

The girls would like to thank their sponsors: Sheahan's Pharmacy, 4 star pizza, Sewell's Pharmacy, Lir, Auntie Nellie's, and Gloria Jeans. The bank is open every Monday in the school and all are welcome. Link teacher Ms. Brosnan said “It’s great to be a part of the AIB Build a Bank challenge and for the girls to be so involved and enthusiastic about their bank and giving back to the school. It’s a wonderful opportunity for them to open their horizons and to get the experience of running a small bank like this.” 



   

Christmas Carols at the Brehon

Our choir did a super job creating a festive atmosphere at the Brehon Hotel on Sunday 2nd December for the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony in aid of St Vincent de Paul. Santa himself made a visit to turn on the lights and meet with the many children who had gathered to join in the festivities! Well done to the girls of St. Brigid's who sang a selection of Christmas Carols which were enjoyed by all.


 

LCVP Trip Nov 18

St Brigid's LCVP students ventured to Skellig Chocolates and their factory base  in Ballinaskelligs. As part of the Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme, students are required to investigate a local enterprise and they chose to learn about Skellig Chocolates. Mr Healy gave the students an in-depth talk on all things enterprise related from production to marketing; as well as how they apply to his own niche area of the industry. Skellig Chocolates kindly gifted the girls a treat on the  day also. Special thanks to Ms Dowling for organizing this trip.
