Saint Brigid brings the Spring!!


Today is the feast day of Saint Brigid and it is also the first day of Spring. We learned a lovely song about Saint Brigid today and teacher told us about Brigid's life. We listened to the story about her cloak and how the chieftain of Ireland tried to trick her but luckily his plan didn't work and Saint Brigid got all the land she needed to build the church where people could gather and pray. We coloured in a lovely picture of Saint Brigid also. We saw how Brigid was a very kind and caring person and it reminded us all to be kind and caring to everyone we meet. Teacher then showed us a Saint Brigid's cross she made using rushes and then we all made our own Saint Brigid's crosses using 4 long strips of coloured paper.
Have a look at the following sites to learn more!!
