Happy St. Brigid's Day
Lá Fhéile Bríde Shona Daoibh

Today is the 1st of Februray, this marks St. Brigid's Day and the official beginning of Spring in Ireland. St. Brigid was born in AD 450 in Faughart, near Dundalk in Co. Louth. She lived during the time of St.Patrick and was inspired by his preachings and she became a Christian. Brigid decided that she would spend her life working for God by looking after poor, sick and elderly people.
Brigid founded many convents all over Ireland; the most famous one was in Co. Kildare. It is said that this convent was built beside an oak tree where the town of Kildare now stands.
There are many traditions associated with St. Brigid, the most famous of them being the making of St. Brigid's crosses. The crosses are made of rushes that are pulled rather than cut. They are hung by the door and in the rafters to protect the house from fire and evil.

Grandparents Day 2018

Each year as part of Catholic Schools Week a special day is set aside to celebrate our Grandparents and all they do for us. This year Grandparents Day took place on Wednesday 31st January 2018. Some classes in the school invited their Garndparents into their classrooms as guest speakers to discuss their lives, loves and passions in life. We would like to say a massive thank you to all the Grandparents who visited our school and we extend a warm hand of friendship to all the Grandparents of Scoil Ide.

As an Active School, we here at Scoil Ide, know how important it is to keep active during the day. Every day at 10 o'clock our classes take 10 minutes to exercise our brians and bodies by taking part in Operation Tranformation's 10@10. Not only do we get up and move in our classrooms but every Friday, from now until the end of Februray, we will be doing 10@10 on the yard as a whole school. Check out the 10@10 videos below and get active with us!

St. Vincent De Paul Giving Tree Appeal

This year the girls in 5th and 6th Class took part in the SVP Giving Tree Appeal. The girls bought presents for boys and girls aged 0-12, teenagers and adults. We are very proud of all the hard work each of the girls put into the appeal. No doubt they are making someone's Christmas very special this year.
