I hope these pages bring a smile to your face. I hope that when you read this Newsletter you are energised and it puts you in touch with the vitality and energy that is so positive here in St. Brigid’s.

The stories and the pictures included in this newsletter tell their own story very effectively and I trust that you will all take the time to read and discuss the many activities that make St. Brigid’s such a vibrant place. The skills, talents, competences, resilience, perseverance and commitment of our students and teachers will leave you in awe.

It is important that, during these challenging times, schools have a positive attitude and be of a positive disposition. The wonderful sense of community in St. Brigid’s is an antidote to the cynicism of consumerism in a society that is increasingly soulless and anonymous. It is timely to remind ourselves of what Nelson Mandela said in regard to facing the obstacles of life and of the need to keep going and be strong in the face of adversity “after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. We are too quick to give up and refuse to get up from our failures. If we don’t fight to get up, we are giving up on something bigger – life. The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall”.

We are a country facing formidable challenges; one of the worst features of our current crisis is that rather than bringing a sense of unity in facing these challenges there is a sense of fragmentation. Christmas provides a reminder of what should be truly valuable in life that is family and community. A new-born generates excitement and anticipation, dispels darkness and dissatisfaction replacing it with love, joy and peace. Let us choose to share love, joy and peace this Christmas and next year.

We can clearly see the achievements of our students and the learning opportunities they have been given. Our students and teachers continue to show great effort and commitment in a wide range of extra-curricular activities. There has been great team spirit and fine efforts made by our debating teams, charity efforts, camogie teams and football teams throughout the last few months.

This Christmas also sees the retirement of Deputy Principal, Carmel Broderick. Carmel was and is a great teacher and a great Deputy Principal and most important of all a great person. She was a role model for all our school community. In her daily interactions with all, she was always conscious of the virtues of respect, tolerance and forgiveness. She holds the highest professional standards and is a woman of great integrity. We wish Carmel every health and happiness on her retirement.

I thank our Parents’ Council, who have been a great support. Through their meetings they have provided an excellent platform for discussing important school issues and their fundraising activities have made a very significant contribution in the context of school finances.

I thank my colleagues in teaching, administration, care-taking and maintenance for their ongoing efforts and wish you peace and joy at Christmas and throughout 2014.

Finally, on behalf of St. Brigid’s College Community I extend to you my warmest greetings for Christmas and 2014 and I hope for all of us it will be a happy, joy-filled and fruitful year.

Ba mhaith liom mo bhuíochas agus mo chomhghairdeas a chur in iúl do phobal na scoíle í gcoítinne ach go mór mór do na múinteoirí a d’oibrigh chomh díograiseach sin.

Beannachtaí na Nollag agus Athbhliain faoi mhaise diobh

Pat Power.
