Dear Parents & Guardians,
We are now all set and really looking forward to welcoming your daughters back to school again next Monday. You can rest assured that all safety measures required have been put in place to ensure a safe and smooth return for all. The staff have been very busy and the classrooms are finally ready and are just awaiting the return of our little ladies!
We now ask that you play your part in our safe return by familiarising yourself with all the HSE and DES guidelines, which have been uploaded to our school website. Most importantly, you need to ensure that your child arrives at school during the exact time slot assigned to her class, no earlier and no later. This is essential to spacing out and controlling the numbers arriving at the school. We also ask that you walk to school if possible and remind you, that if driving, only set down facilities will be permitted.
Senior pupils, from 3rd to 6th, will be assisted by staff in going directly to their classes. They will not line up on yard. Pupils from Senior Infants to 2nd class will be directed by their teacher to line up on yard and will then be brought into their class. Special arrangements have been made for our new Junior Infants. Please ensure that your daughter has a raincoat or umbrella if it is raining, as we can no longer allow children to gather in the school hall. Parents/guardians will not be allowed to enter the campus. If you need to pass on a message, please ring the school office. Your cooperation and support with this plan is vital.
We have made some changes to the arrival/exit gates for certain classes so please check the table and map below so that you are clear as to where your daughter(s) will be going on Monday. There will also be maps of the campus displayed on the outer school railings and these will assist you in locating the various gates being used for entry and exit.
Finally, a word to the girls… have a good sleep on Sunday night. Your teachers and I are really looking forward to seeing you all again on Monday! Slán go fóill.

Welcome to Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní), a school for girls which is situated in the heart of Blanchardstown Village, in Dublin 15. Our girls come from many different parts of the world and bring with them an enriching diversity of cultures and languages.
Our school motto is Let us treat others as we would like them to treat us. This is a very simple statement but when we give it a little bit of thought, we realise that if everyone in the world were to live by this motto, the world would be a happier place for all of us! Here, in Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní), this value is imparted to the children from their very first day at school. Even our youngest children know that before they act, they stop and think. We hope that our girls will carry that philosophy with them throughout their lives.
In Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní), we aim to nurture all aspects of the development of our girls. We strive for a positive atmosphere where each person is valued and where the dignity of each person is respected at all times. We promote all aspects of learning and personal development with a particular emphasis on respect for self and for others.
