From time to time, on ‘If Only The Best Birds Sang’

we have featured blogs belonging to friends we have made

through blogging.


The first school we collaborated with in this way was  

Room 5, Melville Intermediate School, Hamilton, Waikato, New Zealand.

This was a great introduction to making connections through blogging

and we continue to value their friendship.


Dijana is a second level student from Canada

has visited our blog frequently

with encouraging comments.


Miss P’s Foundation Class, Victoria, Australia who are ‘Wild About Learning’

have been younger friends of ours with whom we shared out interest in Bible Stories.


More recently we connected with the students of 

1-2E Brilliant Blog, Holy Rosary School, Victoria, Australia 

and we delighted to discover that their teacher is from Ireland.


But today we discovered a new blog,

that wasn’t thousand of miles away.


It comes from a school that is also in County Wicklow

just 8km up the road in the neighbouring town of Bray

St. Peter’s Bray Blog is a young blog, established in February 2013,

and yet it seems to have ‘hit the ground running,’ creating as it does

a virtual window through which one can already see

a great selection of the interesting activities and events

that the students there have been involved in.


I was most impressed with this film 

made to mark the retirement

of one of their teachers.

This showcases so many talents.


So take a bow to all involved.

We look forward to collaborating with you in the new school year.

  1. What a wonderful post to wake up to, thank you to all at ‘If Only The Best Birds Sang… ‘. We have admired your blog for so long and we’re just delighted that you have enjoyed our blog in return now. Keep up the amazing work and perhaps we shall work on a little project together once we are all settled back to school. We have an exciting start to our year as we are opening our doors to girls in my class and then next year we will have girls in every class and infants for the first time! We are so excited. Enjoy the rest of the holidays!

  2. Lovely to hear from you Ms Brennan 🙂 We have had comments from all over the world

    but it is really heartening to get one from within our own county of Wicklow.

    Finding your blog was a lovely surprise yesterday.

    Amazing that it is only eight months old. When this blog was that age, it really wasn’t fit to be seen out in public 😉

    It was about a year old before we could risk that!
    You seem to have an admirable skillset, particularly noticeable in the film ‘Crusher Curran’. Great abilities demonstrated there.

    I also think your blog is very original. The ideas there are very much your own and as a result give a very clear picture of your school.

    Onwards and upwards!

    The changes in your school will be exciting!

    I live in Little Bray myself so know a number of fine young men who have attended St. Peter’s.

    That I know St.Peter’s so well, as a local is another reason I was so taken with your blog.

    I had only ever, walked passed the school and now I will know

    all the great work and school events that go on inside.

    Well done again to all. I realise how much hard work goes into making a blog work,

    Merry Beau (St. Brigid’s)
