Congratulations to Laetitia Nouaha, Melissa Asare, Sidra Shahzad, Abigail O’Brien Murray and Olivia O’Shea for receiving Excellence In STEM awards at the SciFest National Final Competition.
Laetitia Nouaha, Melissa Asare and Sidra Shahzad’s project entitled: “The Impact of Covid-19 on the Mental Wellbeing of Teenage Girls” involved measuring the impact of COVID-19 on the wellbeing of our students via surveys and focus group interviews and they identified what helped support students’ mental wellbeing.
Abigail O’Brien Murray and Olivia O’Shea’s project is entitled: “Can the Introduction of an Archimedes’ Screw Mechanism Improve the Efficiency of an Overtopping Hydro-Electric Turbine?”. The girls 3-D printed and tested various Archimedes screw designs for harvesting wave energy, and they found that their designs gave more consistent energy output than the standard propellor used in wave energy capture.



TY News


On  Monday Ms. Byrne’s TY Rang Gaeilge got creative making videos as Gaeilge. The students showcased all the facilities Baile Brigín has to offer. Maith sibh a chailíní!

Tidy Towns

On Monday Ms. Darcy’s Community Links module group worked alongside the Balbriggan Tidy Towns Committee to plant bulbs and do some litter picking.

It was great for the students to take some pride in their local community whilst also learning about some gardening tips from the volunteers. The girls  are very much looking forward to working with Tidy Towns again over the coming weeks.



Future Leaders

As part of their future leaders class, TY students hosted a 1st year Olympics event for all first years. The 1st years had to participate in many fun activities.  1D were the outright winners, winning the most points in each activity to claim their prize, a storm in a teacup voucher.


5th Years had a ‘Cope Cake’ assembly on Friday. The assembly highlighted ways to develop coping skills for when life presents challenging or stressful situations. Afterwrads everyone enjoyed tea, coffee, hot chocolate, a cup cake and of course a chat!


Zoo Trip.

All second years had a fantastic trip to Dublin Zoo on Friday. As part of the trip the students attended a very enjoyable  sustainability workshop. The workshop covered issues with a special focus on animal habitat and endangered species and consumer ethical responsibility.  They were then free to explore the Zoo and visit the animals.
