In our school we consider participation in sporting activities to be very important. Pupils are encouraged to be active at all break times. They enjoy playing ball games, skipping and playground games. We are very fortunate to have a basketball court, two football pitches, a soft play area with a slide, monkey bars, a fireman pole, a balance bridge and a climbing rope in addition to the front area of our school. We also have the use of St. Brigid’s hall for indoor PE activities.

Football, camogie/hurling, basketball and soccer training is provided by the teachers during lunch break. In addition to this training, Ita O’ Donoghue provides basketball training and the local GAA coaches provide training in football and hurling during the school year. During the 2018 school year Ger from Carlow GAA was training the boys and girls from 2nd class up every Thursday. It started with football training and then moved onto hurling. Furthermore, the children participate in all the Cumann na mBunscoil football, hurling and camogie leagues and in the basketball and soccer league.

Pupils from 1st to 6th class and all pupils in the ASD classes also avail of 10 weeks swimming instruction each year. Dates can be found in the school calendar. Also, all pupils enjoy our yearly Active School Week, including our sports day. At the end of the year the school tours take place. They are very active events with the senior pupils participating in water based activities and outdoor pursuits.

15 June 2018: All girls Basketball Team wins Final Interschool Basketball League

What a day we had in Bagnalstown VEC on Friday 15th of June. We were taking part in the Carlow Inter schools basketball competition. The girls were in the final against Kildavin. There were both 5th and 6th class girls on the team and each player did their very best. At ten seconds to go, we were ahead by one basket when Kildavin came back and scored! We couldn’t believe our luck - we had to play three minutes extra time! In those three minutes we gave everything and in the end we won by three points! The girls came back to the school to such a warm reception! They should be very proud of themselves. Congratulations to all your hard work defiantly payed off!
