FAI Spar 5 Aside

After numerous trials and only being able to pick 16 boys from almost 60, Michael O Regan, Ms O Brien and Ms O Mahony headed off to Abbotstown for the FAI SPAR 5 aside soccer tournament. We had two teams entered into the competition. Both teams played very well considering the pace of the game and it being 5 a side soccer. The decision on who was to leave the group stages came down to the last match for one of the teams. Unfortunately St Ciaran’s knocked us out of the competition, however they went on to win the overall tournament on the day.

The boys played extremely well with outstanding performances from so many of them. A huge thank you to Ms Daly and Michael for organising the event. We wish the girls the very best of luck on Thursday 30th!

The Rugby Blitz

The Rugby Blitz happened on 10/2/2016. Ms.Leonard’s and Ms.Gray’s Fifth Classes competed against each other. The classes utilized their amazing rugby skills that they acquired from recent rugby activity organized by our wonderful rugby trainers.

The teamwork of both teams was outstanding in all of the matches. The teams were very competitive and sportsmanlike. The matches were exciting, especially when the better players made daring maneuvers for their teams.

Some players had extraordinary skills compared to others, but everybody made good efforts in their teams. During the matches some accidents happened but no-one was hurt thankfully.

However, all of the players had some great fun while playing.

Dublin City Marathon

marathonWell done to the pupils from Mr Cloherty’ s sixth class and members of our athletics group who took part in the run today.  The pupils ran the last mile of the marathon after training and running in school over the past 6 weeks. They all had the great experience of running to the Finish line and received t shirts, marathon medals and a goodie bag. Perhaps they will run the full marathon sometime in the future!
