Basketball League

The Basketball League was thoroughly enjoyable and at times fiercely competitive and great credit is due to all players involved.  Thanks also to the students who did time-keeping and scores.The team captains were Adam, Conor, Mikey, Oisín and Seán. Teams had members from second to sixth class, and it was wonderful to see team work and the Captains planning their tactics. Adam’s team played Mikey’s team in the final with Mikey’s team emerging as the champions.

Gaelic Football

The Gaelic football season for 2018 came to an end with the girls’ in the final of the Mini-7’s, a fantastic achievement. They played Dunamaggan, Canice’s and Piltown and did themselves proud. They also reached the semi-final of the championship where they put in a great effort right up to the end but were defeated by the eventual winners, Windgap.

The boys’ had a very competitive season also. They got to the semi-final of the Country Cup where they put up a valiant display and battled to the end, but a very strong Clara team prevailed.

Many thanks to the teachers who gave so much of their time to training and matches and to parents for all the driving.

Credit Union Art Competition

The year the theme for the Credit Union Art Competition was The Force of Nature. Congratulations to our prize-winning students from 2nd, 4th and 6th classes. Well done and keep sketching! The sporty students at St Brendan’s have been busy too and both boys and girls deserve great praise for their participation in football this season. Finally, we would like to commend the debating team, their researchers, those who helped with the surveys, time-keeping, and chairpersons for all their work. 5th and 6th Class Students have now completed their Scríobh Leabhar project, which has been delivered to Kilkenny Education Centre. Our books will be swapped with students from the same class level, and we will get books from another class to read in January 2019.
