Taking on the Teachers!

Our sixth classes took part in the Active Ireland “Taking on the Teachers” challenge. We did basketball relays, tug of war, a penalty shoot out and golf (which everyone found hard!) At the end of the challenge, it was a draw but sixth class won after a basketball shoot out. Everyone was delighted, especially when they got a night off homework as a prize!

In even better news, we just learned that our school, along with another school in Donegal, won the competition so we have won €150 of sports equipment for the school.

We are all looking forward to the rematch!

Teachers Versus Students Football Game

Today we had two games with the teachers versus a team from third and fourth classes and a game against a team from fifth and sixth classes.

The first game ended level 5-5.  It went to penalties, sudden death.  The students won after two penalties each (1-0)

The second game finished 3-2 to the students after getting a last minute goal.

Everybody enjoyed the day.

Below are some photographs.
