Development Education Award

In good news, this week our school has been awarded a Diplomatic Passport from World Wise Global Schools. The Global Passport Award is a Development Education (DE) quality mark, which offers schools a framework to integrate DE into their teaching and learning. It is a self-assessed and externally-audited accreditation for DE that is open to all post primary schools in the Republic of Ireland. The passport award evaluated our engagement with DE in a number of categories including, curricular, extra curricular, student and teacher engagement, community engagement and leadership and policies. DE is a powerful vehicle through which we can better understand the world we live in, and take action to change it as informed global citizen. Our schools engagement with Development Education is based on the belief that education for human rights and sustainable development are central concerns for our school curriculum. The perspective fostered through DE is one that sees students as active agents in their own learning, favouring a critical questioning approach over one which might tell them what to think. Here in Coláiste Bhríde we engage in Development Education in numerous ways, through our curriculum and extra curriculars such as YSI, Green Schools, Concern Debates and the countless initiatives fostered by teachers inside and outside of their classrooms. A plaque and banner banner was due to be awarded to our school at the World Wise Global Schools Conference in Cork this week but has been rescheduled to next November. We look forward to continuing and building upon this achievement as a whole school on our return. Huge thank you to the World Wise Global Schools team, as well as all of the students and teachers who supported our application.

 The U14 girls faced local rivals, St. Kevin’s, Dunlavin in their first group game of the Leinster championship. Dunlavin started the stronger team but were not able to capitalise due to excellent defending by the CB girls. The home team soon settled into the game and despite a shaky finish to the half, they were down by only one point. The second half was a lot more comfortable for the Carnew girls. They worked very well together and managed some great scores and managed to win comfortably. The final score was 2-7 to 1-2. The girls face Newbridge in their next group game.

Well done to our TY students who were exemplary ambassadors for Coláiste Bhríde today.
