Our 3rd Green Flag
WATER WATER EVERYWHERE….. This year the Green Committee were focused on the theme of Water again in the hope of securing the third Green Flag for Woodbrook College. The year got off to a great start with three of our Third Year students being appointed Water Ambassadors by An Taisce. Eduard, Adam and Daniel attended a national training day in Dublin where they met other ambassadors and shared ideas on how they could raise awareness around Water Conservation and Sustainable use.

PE Xpo 2018
Congratulations to Toni-Marie Ceno, Sophie Kennedy, Fiona Nervez, Dylan Kavanagh and Niamh Carry McLeavey on winning the Components of Fitness Junior category at the this year’s PE Xpo. It was a milestone for the school as it is the first time the school have won a prize at the competition and excellent reward for the hard work the five 2nd year students put into their project. The PE Xpo event is in its fourth year, had nearly 200 projects entered and took place in Dublin City University (DCU). The project the students presented on was a Personal Exercise Plan to improve their Performance in Football. Each student specifically worked on speed, agility and power through a variety of training methods on a six week period so they could improve their football performance. The project showed that each student had dedication and resilience to stick with their training programme and collaboration to work as a group to create and present their findings to the judges at the PE Xpo. The skills that the students are developing will be invaluable as they go through school but also when they begin working. Special mention to Konrad Bzdrya, Eduard Grefaldeo, Joey Yu and Éibhín Flanagan in TY for putting in the hard work to present projects, unfortunately they didn’t win the categories in which they were competing but did themselves proud. Well done to all students and to Ms. Dwane for helping them with the statistical analysis aspect of their project.

A huge thank you to all the parents who made this year's trip possible for the boys. They were a joy to have along and really did themselves and you proud. They hiked the ancient Roman pathways from Tarragona to the Medieval corridors of Las Ramblas and beyond to gain an insight into Catalonian culture and development whilst having the best of fun bonding with their year group. An excellent trip for all involved.

Woodbrook College Fun Run 2017

We are a Christian Brother school and have commitment to social justice and to helping others in our community. We organise an annual fun run in Shanganagh Park with the cooperation of the DLRCC to raise funds and build awareness of our connection with all people.
This year we raised €1,500 with the help of the parents, students and staff…this is a huge achievement for such a small school and each member of the community should be extremely proud of their efforts.
The charities and clubs we will be helping this year are the Fr. Peter McVerry Trust which addresses homelessness in Ireland and does incredible work as we approach a cold winter period; the Fields for Life program in Crinken Glen Church which builds wells for our neighbours in Uganda and which has a goal of 1,000 wells by 2019; and finally…the archery club run on our school premises by Sean Butler which brings a great amount of enthusiasm from the students who love it…we shall donate a new bow for the club to use in educating these students from all across Bray.
