Health Promoting School Initiative

At St. Brendan’s, we aim to be a Health Promoting School. In 2015 we attained that status having worked closely with the HSE on different initiatives throughout the school. We will continue to organise different events and initiatives to ensure that everyone in the school has the best chance of leading healthy lives

The Blog below will keep you up to date on all our efforts!!

The first, second, third and fourth classes went to the girls school to learn about road safety. We had to pass a safety course and then we received a safety licence. The course was to laid out on a play road in the hall. Some boys were on play bikes, play cars and some were pedestrians. There was a Garda directing us and telling us what to do. The pedestrians used zebra crossings. After the course the Garda talked to us about the importance of road safety and we all got our safety lincences.

The boys from 5th and 6th took part in a rugby blitz during the week before the midterm break. This was the culmination of several weeks of training for the lads who worked with a Connacht Rugby skills coach every week to help them with the basic skills and rules of the game. They loved the experience and had great fun at the blitz which took place in Loughrea Rugby Field. Lots of the lads are hoping now to continue on with Loughrea Rugby Club over the winter which is a great way to keep active during the next few months.

Our 6th class boys have just finished this year’s Cycle Right cycling course and all passed with flying colours. Leroy and Richard were back again this year to out the lads through their paces. This year they even taught three of our boys how to cycle for the first time. The lads all really enjoyed the course and can’t wait to put their new road safety tips into action.

Football Mini Sevens

This year the football mini sevens was held in Leitrim. First we played Kiltartan and we won. After that we played Woodford and we won so we were waiting to find out who to play in the final. There was a three way tie in the other groups and so we had to wait until they played their playoff. Kinvara eventually won through and it was the we played in the final. After a tough game, we won and went through to play in the County Finals in Annaghdown.

In Annaghdown we played Mervue, Miltown and Kileeneen. We played three tough and lose games but unfortunately drew won and narrowly lost the other two. We had a great couple of days with lots of good football though.
