Extra School Activities

In Scoil Bhríde Nurney we offer pupils opportunities to get involved in various extra-curricular activities.

It is during this time that we most realize how blessed we all are to be part of the Catholic mission of Scoil Bhríde, committing our time and energy every day towards creating a nurturing environment in which all our children can thrive!

The time given by parents and our teachers in goodwill to extra activities for the children inspires us every day. Be it giving up lunch or days to train children or time spent on activities/meetings after 3pm or giving up pre-work morning time for meetings, the work that these people do is not taken for granted and is appreciated on a daily basis.

To them all we say a sincere thank you!
