PARENTS

Parents Council Needs Your Help!!!!

Our Parents Council are holding a Bingo fundraising event on Thursday April 11th in the Round Towers GAA club in Clondalkin.  The proceeds from this event will be used to fund the school bursary, which is offered to our outgoing 6th year students every year to help cover some of their college expenses.

It's always a great night but we do need help to make it a success! If you would like to donate either your time on the night or some prizes to boost our winnings that would be great.  If you are a local business you may wish to sponsor a game or donate prizes.  We would grately appreciate all and any support we can get.

If you are interested please contact us by email at parentscouncil@colaistebride.com

Many thanks!

 

Online Safety - arm yourself with knowledge!!

Here are Coláiste Bríde we are committed to Digital Citizenship for our whole school community, including parents.  The internet can present us with some challenging scenarios when it comes to monitoring our teenagers online activity.  We found this guide from Irish organisation Webwise particularly helpful.  It is full of practical tips and advice regarding you and your family's online presence and safety.  Please click on the link below to read the guide in full.

Be Online Safety Aware!!

Online safety is an issue that we take very seriously in Coláiste Bríde as you know and each year we host an information session for parents as well as regularly addressing our students and each year being addressed by our local Community Gardai too.

We have recently discovered there may be students/others setting up fake Facebook profiles of staff.  This is a most serious matter and is reported to the Gardai.  Be assured that as a school and as staff members we do not request friends on Facebook with students, this is not used by the school and is indeed blocked.  If you ever come across this matter please report it immediately as the school treats this most seriously.

It has also come to our attention more and more that students are putting themselves into danger by posting photos and videos of themselves naked and/or semi-naked on their social media sites.  Essentially this is child pornography, is inappropriate, is dangerous and we urge parents to speak with their daughter/s re online safety.

Students are not aware of the dangers and where their images may end up around the world.  We advise parents to seek advice.  Consult websites such as www.spunout.ie and www.webwise.ie.

We generally advise students of the "Granny Rule" re internet safety and appropriate online behaviour -

"Would your Granny be happy to see/read that?"

We urge you to please take this issue seriously and take the necessary action to protect your daughter!

 

A Framework for Junior Cycle

As you may be aware a new Junior Cycle programme is being developed at the moment.  Coláiste Bríde has been chosen to partake in the process of developing this new programme.  Below is a link to a leaflet detailing the process to date.  We would encourge you to take a look and for further information and updates please go to www.ncca.ie
