As the school year has come to a close, Gaelscoil Bhrian Boroimhe in Swords were very proud of their student’s varied achievements, including curricular, cross-curricular and extra-curricular events.

Principal, Séamus Seaghach told the County Leader, “We had huge success on the playing fields this year. Our senior boys’ and senior girls’ football teams won their respective finals in Parnell Park in the Fingal League. Not to be outdone, our junior boys’ and junior girls’ football teams both won their respective finals in Parnell Park. It was, however, a historic day for our school hurling team as they played for the first time in the Cumann na mBunscoil Final in Croke Park and emerged as worthy champions. He continued, “also our cross-country runners did us proud in Santry last March, followed by our sprinters in May.

Our camogie team reached the semi-final in Cumann na mBunscol this year having played in the final in Croke Park the previous year. Aside from sports the school has been busy in all other areas of creativity. We have been developing our school garden for the past few years with the help of parents and teachers and won an award this year in recognition of this work.”

He concluded, “The children in Rang 3 won three awards for their drama ‘An Fathach Scoile,’ in the Coirm Festival last February. Rang 4 won the All-Ireland in their category of An Fhéile Scoildrámaíochta, with their drama ‘An Baglady’ last April. Finally, Cairde na Scoile, our parent association, helped to produce our first ever bi-lingual cookbook ‘Bia Blasta’ this Easter, a publication we are very proud of,” he said.

“We are proud of all the children in our school, and proud of the dedication and willingness of our staff to go the extra mile. We are so lucky to have dedicated parents who provide wonderful and continued support to the children and to the school. Ar aghaidh linn le chéile.”
