After School Soccer Club
Tuesday afternoons sees the After School Football Club take place for boys in 3rd and 4th class on the school astro turf pitches. It affords the children the opportunity to learn new skills in a fun, safe and structured environment. Whether you're a beginner or the next Lionel Messi you'll experience valuable training and coaching at the After School Football Club!
Scoil Bhríde BNS soccer team has been revived in recent years having performed admirably in both the league and cup competitions.
Crafty Science Club
Every Tuesday boys from 1st to 3rd class join "Scientist Hayes" for some simple science activities.
We make volcanos, rainbow foam, playdough, marshmallow paint, lava lamps and many other interesting things.
The boys especially love the coke & mentos experiment which creates a fizzy explosion!
Scoil Bhríde Boys Bike Club
Do you know how to repair a puncture?
Do you know how to take a tire off a wheel or how to clean a bike??
No? Well you should ask the boys of the Scoil Bhríde Boys Bike Club!!
During the month of November the boys were busy learning how to do this and they also practiced some of the bike skills that they already know. The tires were kindly given to us by the guys of Cyclezone in the village.
Every week the boys showed great enthusiasm and always wanted to learn more. We will be doing our bike club again in the New Year! We hope to have more fifth and sixth class boys in the club!
Have a look of our pictures and see the hard work that was done by the boys!!

The best thing to do is to put the tire in the water and look for bubbles
