We were delighted to welcome on Monday a few past pupils and recent winners of the Donegal Intermediate Football Championship Final Replay.  For the first time in their history Burt lifted the  Donegal Intermediate Football Championship title beating Milford by two points in the final replay.

The whole school cheered as they entered the school hall with the trophy.  We listened to their words of advice and encouragement and afterwards took class photos with the champions.

Parent’s Association Fundraising

Parent’s Association Fundraising


Kathryn Mc Brearty and Maureen Hamilton presenting a cheque of €8850.73 to Joan Faulkner on behalf of the Parent’s Association.

Funds were raised from the hugely successful fundraising night ‘ The Kube’

Well done to the entire Parent’s Association and all the parents for the much appreciated and much needed funds.

We have Water!!!

Repairs to a burst water pipe in Fahan have caused supply disruptions in the Bridgend area.


However we have not been affected as we have enough water in our water tanks in the attic to supply water for toilets and handwashing for at least one day, if not more.


Photographs and Videos

Christmas Plays and taking photos/videos
Any parent wishing to take photograph or short video of their child during the Xmas play should be aware that these photos are for private personal viewing only
and must not be shared on any social media, Facebook etc. To do so would be in breach of the Data Protection Policy of the school and infringe on the rights of others.
