Fun Run 2019
Report
Fun Run 2019
In spite of the wet weather, the 2019 Fun Run took place on Friday October 25th. For the first time in its existence the venue was changed from Shanganagh Park to the school campus due to the poor wet weather. The students involved in the organisation were excellent when asked to adapt to the contingency of staging the run on the schools grounds at short notice. Well done to all involved on reacting so well to the change of venue. Even though the weather was poor, student enthusiasm and participation was high. This was reflected by the €1250 fundraised from the €5 entry fee to take part. The funds raised were donated to the four different charity partners; Irish Aid, Vision Sports Ireland, Irish Wheelchair Association and Christmas Hamper appeal. Well done to all those bravely participated in spite of the poor weather and their generous donations. For the students that were keen to compete, there three races within the Fun Run; senior boys’, girls’ and junior boys’. Congratulations to Conor Murphy on winning the senior boys’ race, Eve O’Brien on winning the girls’ race and Nathan O’Shea on winning the junior boys’ race. The whole school community look forward to the 2020 edition of the Fun Run and wish for improved weather conditions so it can return to the Shanganagh Park venue.

Open Night

We had a huge turnout for our first Open Night in the new school on Tuesday, December 1st. There was a great buzz about the building and those present were very impressed with the new facilities. The brightness and colour coupled with the state of the art equipment throughout the school was a talking point for everyone. There was a big attendance at the three information talks which were held throughout the evening and these gave the prospective students and their parents some background about the history of the school, the curriculum covered and the exciting future plans for the school. These include the move to co-education from September 2016 as well as our rebranding process which will bring with it a number of significant changes to the school including our name change to “Woodbrook College”. We had a big turnout of present students on the night who assisted the teachers to demonstrate some of the many activities that go on in a busy school and all of these students proved excellent ambassadors for the school on the night.
