We visit the theatre with our pupils when suitable shows are staged and each year we invite two theatre/music groups to give a live performance in our Halla Mór.
Participation in a variety of sports is strongly encouraged as they help to foster teamwork, co-operation and school spirit. Our primary sports are Hurling and Gaelic Football. Our school teams have represented us with distinction in Sciath na Scol competitions and many All-Ireland medal holders have worn the Scoil Barra jersey in their younger days. Our athletics team enters the Cork City Primary Sports every year and we also hold our own Sports Day and School Leagues which cater for children of all talents. Scoil Barra has very strong links with sporting clubs in Blackrock Parish and we greatly appreciate the support of Blackrock Hurling Club, St. Michael’s Gaelic Football Club, Cork Constitution RFC, Avondale FC and St. Michael’s LTC. Scoil Barra Buachaillí is also affiliated to FAIS, IRFU, and fields teams in their competitions annually.
We strive to create and nurture structures that support and develop positive parental involvement and participation in the life and work of the school. We acknowledge the direct relationship between parental interest and children’s performance in school. Our Parents’ Association is affiliated to the National Parents’ Council and is actively involved in many of our curricular and extra curricular activities.
