Sporting Success and Fun

We have had great sporting success and fun in St Molaga’s school this term, from our terrific junior boys’ success in Parnell Park last week to enjoyable and successful outings such as the recent 5th/6th class Football blitz, yesterday’s most enjoyable 3rd/4th class Hurling blitz and of course the great success of  our 5th/6th class rugby team beating other schools in the area to win the Pat Browne perpetual trophy for Rugby earlier this term. Great credit is also due to our senior boys gaelic team and the girls gaelic team who played so well and showed such wonderful team spirit in their league matches as well as the Athletics team who distinguished themselves by their excellent performances  in Santry.

Comhghairdeas libh go léir!

Many classes have participated in Sports with external trainers this year; in GAA, thanks to Barry who does wonderful work year on year with the children in our school, in soccer, which was a great hit with the 6th and the 4th classes, and in rugby, where Paul did a great job with all class levels as well as having an inter-class blitz with the 4th classes. Cycling was a most beneficial and enjoyable addition to the P.E timetable for 6th class earlier in the year and the Sports Conditioning programme was of huge benefit to our third classes this term also. Many thanks to all the trainers who have shared their expertise with our class teachers this year.


Sports days have of course started too, with 4th classes having a great day last week. 5th and 6th classes are raring to go tomorrow and 3rd classesare looking forward to their day (hopefully in the sun!) next week.

Many children have been involved this week in a most enjoyable in-school soccer blitz organised by Ms Walsh. Children from 3rd and 4th classes played against each other and likewise, children from 5th and 6th classes. to declare a winning team at each level. There will be great excitement tomorrow when the winning 5th/6th class team plays a team of teachers as part of the 5th/6th class sports day!

Please God we will have some good weather this summer and children from St Molaga’s will be outside as much as possible playing sports with friends from school and the wider community and practicing all the skills they have been working on this year!
