Gymnastics 2019/20

St. Brigid's National School Redhills-53

Breifne Gymnastics Academy

We have a new partnership this year. We are working along side Breifne Gymnastics Academy.  The children take part in lessons while the teachers observe and gain new ideas to try out themselves. We would like to thank Leah and Gillian for all their hard work.

Sky Sports –  Living for Sports 

We are delighted to announce that Sky Sports have come on board with St. Brigid’s NS in their bid to achieve the Active School Flag. Carla Rowe,  who is a plays county football for Dublin, is our school mentor.  She come to visit the children in 5th and 6th class before Christmas and she will be back again to meet us all for Active School’s Week (3rd – 6th April, 2017).




This year saw a new partnership with the FAI in St Brigid’s NS. We had children from 3rd-6th participating in local futsal and soccer tournaments. Training took place on Monday evenings after school and the children showed tremendous improvement every week. They tested their skills in three tournaments and showed that with the talent available here at the school this is certainly a partnership which we will be continuing to develop in future.

Our association with Rounders began in 2015 when we entered a team into the Cavan primary schools competition. Since then, the sport has continued to flourish in our school and we are currently preparing for upcoming competitions in the summer. Resulting from this partnership, we have forged new relationships with local schools and members of the national Rounders association through our involvement in competitions.
