This year we had great results in the cross country relay competition in Avondale. This event is run every year by Athletics Ireland and it is wonderful to see so many children taking part. We were delighted to win GOLD medals in 5th class and SILVER medals in 6th class. Well done to all who participated!!
Third and Fourth Classes recent enjoyed a trip to Glendalough National Park for Tree Day on Wednesday 2nd October. They went on a treasure hunt around Glendalough looking for clues about trees. They had to guess the age of an Oak tree which they later found out was 231 years old. The children then enjoyed playing stick puzzle games and pinecone & spoon races. A great day was had by all and the sun shone all day.
Congratulations to our overall winners from Second Class who came up with our new Active School Slogan. We ran a poster competition throughout the school to pick a new slogan. Our new slogan is 'Keep fit - do your bit'. Well done to all the children who participated and completed lovely posters. We had a 2nd place winner from Sixth Class and joint third place winners from Junior Infants.
