Memories from BGS

The teachers are hugely patient and friendly, which was a great help to me. They were always willing to help in any way that they could. I found that I could always also rely on my classmates. They are used to receiving new people every year, so they were also an incredible source of help. The school has many sporting facilities and I spent most afternoons playing soccer, tennis or basketball. This was very enjoyable, especially after being in classes all day!

Thinking of my memories of my time in BGS, it's hard to pick one or even a few things that I could say are my stand out memories. From the first night in the dorm to the day we picked up our Leaving Cert results, there are too many memories to recollect them all!

Lorna Ferguson Student, Class of 2003

Our first memory of the school was from the induction day when Mr.Coombes talked about the academic development for all the students, emphasising that they would all be encouraged and assisted to reach their full potential. Over the years this became very evident as we watched our son develop academically with confidence, given the support and encouragement when needed.
