Fun Run 2019
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.

Wicklow-Wexford Champions 2019Woodbrook College Fun Run 2017

Wicklow-Wexford Champions 2019

A hugely impressive win for the 1st Year Soccer Team today as they battled against a resilient Wexford CBS to claim the Wicklow/Wexford Championship. Normal time couldn't separate the teams and it took a late rally in extra-time to seal the victory for this rapidly developing young side.

It took goals from Kayden Clucas, Dylan Fitzpatrick and Liam Mullins in addition to an outstanding save from Adam O'Toole to win the day. The team now march on to the Leinster Champions' League where hopefully more success awaits. 

Mr. Kenny and indeed, the whole school community is extremely proud of their achievements.



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.
