Over the past few weeks, all of the sixth classes have worked extremely hard to prepare for the Dublin Kid’s Marathon for the first time. We have worked hard since September, by running increasing numbers of laps around our local all weather pitch. We persevered for eight weeks to prepare for the event.
A group of people gathered at the National Sports Campus to run at the original event. Their aim was to run the last mile of the Dublin Kid’s Marathon.
While some people attended, some were unable to attend and therefore Ms Walsh kindly organised our own event in our school. Ms McGinley’s, Mr Brown’s, Ms Gray’s, Ms McMahon’s and Ms Reilly’s c;asses all ran, regardless of their ability. Everybody that ran got a medal! It was a fantastic event.
A BIG THANKS to Ms Walsh and all the other teachers that were involved in the 8 weeks of training.
Colm, Daniel, Kate, Kevin and Mary from Ms McGinley’s class.
