Bunscoil Bhride School News

Welcome back! We are excited to be launching into another busy, eventfilled, fun school year at Bunscoil Bhrīde. I'd like to extend a particularly warm welcome to all our new pupils and parents. We look forward to getting to know all of your children and working closely alongside you to make this the best year yet for them.

Our goal is to help each child at Bunscoil Bhrīde to reach her full potential in a happy, kind, caring environment in which she can blossom intellectually, socially, emotionally and spiritually.

School Trips

In September the whole-school took part in National Fitness Day. Click here for more information.

History of Rathangan


Rathangan gets its name from 'Iomgháins Rath', the remains of which still can be seen at the top of the town. Throughout the years, the town has been shaped by many influences and events such as the 1798 Rebellion, the Grand Canal and Bórd na Móna. Click here for more information.

Active Schools


This year Bunscoil Bhríde will be working towards achieving our second Active Schools flag. Bearing in mind that it is recommended that all children should be taking part in moderate to vigorous exercise for sixty minutes every day, the Active schools committee has come up with lots of good ideas to encourage us all to be more active. Click here for more information.
