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!!

Operation Transformation 10 @ 10

As many of you may be aware Operation Transformation is in full swing on RTE 1 and one of the initiatives they have promoted this year is 10 @ 10. This is where they wanted to encourage schools all over the country to become active for 10 minutes on the 10th of February. Being a Health Promoting School and an Active Flag holder we thought that this sounded like a great idea and so all got out in the yard for our 10 minutes exercise. This was so enjoyable we have decided to continue for the rest of the year. SO on the 10th of every month the whole school will be getting outside for some much needed exercise. Have a look at some pictures from the morning below or check out our gallery page for more.

County Champions

A huge congratulations must go to all the boys involved in the recent county championship success in hurling. The boys were the proud winners of the top division of school hurling in Galway winning a thrilling encounter in Loughgeorge last Thursday 9th of June. After beating Craughwell, Bullaun and Carabane en route to the final, the boys faced tough opposition from a talented Ardrahan outfit who had overcome Carnmore, Killeeneen and Kinvara to book their place in the decider. In what was a very tight and tense first half the boys bounced back from conceding an early goal to lead by a point at half time. The second half continued as the first with both teams battling hard but in the end St. Brendan’s pulled away to win on a scoreline of 4-10 to 1-3. It is a huge achievement for the boys and we are massively proud of their big win. A big well done to all involved!

Ghlac muid páirt i Rith 2016 le haghaidh Seachtain na Gaeilge inné. Shiúl muid síos go dtí teach na cuairte agus fuair muid baton ón nGaelscoil a bhí ag glacadh páirt freisin, comh maith le Scoil Íde. Ansin rith muid suas ar feadh cilimeadar go dtí an scoil arís. Bhí an spraoi againn agus rinne muid go léir iarracht mhór gaeilge a labhairt i rith an lae ar fad.

World Book Day

admin : March 3, 2016 2:16 pm : 1st Class, 2nd Class, 3rd Class, 4th Class, 5th Class, 6th Class, Active Schools Flag, Green Schools, Health Promoting School, News

Today was World Book Day. We decided we should celebrate the day by dressing up. Lots of the children dressed up as characters from their favourite books and we saw some really creative costumes!! Each class also did a reading slot during the day that meant as a school we read continuously for the whole day!!

As we were also beginning our Weekly Walk to School this week we thought what better way to mark the beginning of it than with a walk in our costumes. Over 90 children walked to school from the cathedral and from Banogue. We will be continuing this walk every Wednesday from the same places and encourage as many students as possible to join us whenever they can. We want to encourage everybody to get more active and save our environment by using their cars less. To get you in the mood why not have a look at some photos from the day below, and for lots more photos from our different events why not check out our gallery page!
