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
London Tour
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

This years TY Drama Production was the play Hatchet by Heno Magee. Auditions took place before Christmas and a total cast of 16 students took part in the play with another 13 students involved in set design and backstage. Students performed a thrilling matinee which was enjoyed by all the students and also one nightime performance by parents and family members. The production was directed by Ms Syron and Mr O'Brien.

Parents’ Council

Welcome to Woodbrook College Parents’ Council


Who are we?

The Woodbrook Parents' Council is a volunteer group made up of parents and guardians of students attending Woodbrook College. Our purpose is to:

  • Promote the active involvement of parents and guardians of students attending Woodbrook College in the day-to-day running of the school
  • Act as a voice for parents, guardians and students and advocate their interests on education and school related matters
  • Provide a forum for parents, guardians and students to raise questions, express opinions and exchange relevant information
  • Foster and enhance the school’s relationship with parents, guardians and students through regular social events
  • Assist in raising funds in support of the school
  • Offer input into school policies and support the school management and teaching staff


What we do:

The Parents’ Council meets monthly during the school year. Meetings are attended by the School Principal and typically involve exchange of information relating to school matters in addition to planning the various social events, fundraising activities and educational talks that we organise throughout the year.
