6th Class

This year 6th class set about writing a school anthem that would hopefully capture everything that the school is about - a difficult task given all the great initiatives that take place. With the help of Ms. Hartnett we brainstormed many verses on different themes like sport, music, art, inclusivity and history. There were many quality verses that were sifted through and taken apart to fit in with other verses. Slowly but surely an anthem began to emerge and with the musical expertise of Ms. Boyle we began to practice singing our school anthem. Finally, we the help of Pierce O’Donnell, we recorded the school anthem on June 11th 2019. Please take a listen to the anthem below - A school anthem written for the children by the children.N

School Anthem

Verse 1

We started off in juniors, now we’re here today

We didn’t know each other, now friends we’ll always be

To help us on this journey, by making learning fun

Together we go further singing out our song .

Chorus 2:

These are the places that you want to be,
Presentation, De la Salle, Academy

Working together, where dreams come true

Ní neart go cur le cheile, St. Brigid’s is for you

Verse 2

Playing for our school team, winning is our way,
We put on that jersey, It brightens up the day

Learning to be who we are, everyday feels new.

So raise your voice, let’s rejoice: St. Brigid’s is for you

Chorus 2

These are the places that you want to be,
Presentation, De la Salle, Academy

Working together, where dreams come true

Ní neart go cur le cheile, St. Brigid’s is for you

Verse 3

Music and art, We always leave a mark,
Our friendship is a light that shines, Even when it’s dark.
16 nationalities we’re one big family,

Collecting precious memories, St. Brigid’s all the way.

Chorus:

These are the places that you want to be,
Presentation, De la Salle, Academy

Working together, where dreams come true

Ní neart go cur le cheile, St. Brigid’s is for you

These are the places that you want to be,

Presentation, De la Salle, Academy

Working together, where dreams come true

Ní neart go cur le cheile….. Ní neart go cur le cheile,

These are the places x3
