TY gives each of our students the opportunity to experience a huge range of learning activities from performing on the stage to learning self-defence or cutting-edge movie editing skills. However; the trips to some of Ireland's and Europe's cultural hotspots will stay with our students for years to come. Here is a selection of photos from this year's Achill adventure. Enjoy and/or revisit the fun and exciting highlights in our gallery. It gives a little glimpse into the TY programme offered by Woodbrook College.

London Tour
2017
TY have enjoyed a brilliant trip to London earlier this week and although there are a ton of photos we are limited in how many we can display online so any student who would like a full copy only needs to bring in a memory stick on Monday. I have included a photo of a true Irish footballing legend, Sean St. Ledger, who stopped by to say hello to our travelling brigade. The group got to train with Watford FC, were invited to a full Premier League game, saw the sights of London and experienced the thrills of Thorpe Park's roller-coasters. Hopefully many happy memories were created. Especially for Alex Griffen and Dean Kearney who had the pleasure of Swansea FC fans writing an entire chant with chorus in their honour

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.
