Today, we continued learning the basic skills of Gaelic Football. We worked on making our kicking accurate so we can pass and score. We had great fun trying to make our kicks land inside the scoring zone!
Today we had rugby coaching for P.E. and our class played tag rugby it was so fun. First of all, we had our morning warm-up in inform of different types of exercise, like jogging our four laps and doing burpees. Ben, the rugby coach, taught us how to drop kick the ball and how to do a pop pass. Afterwards, we started the tag rugby and it was the red tag team vs the blue team and the blue team won. We all had fun.
A VERY POSITIVE BEGINNING TO AN ACTIVE SCHOOL CAMPAIGN! Already our pupils are off to a flying start. There was a great sense of whole school enthusiasm for our running trials in the Boyne Rovers pitch as all classes participated on September 3rd when the weather proved very favourable. Well done to the helper pupils from R10 under the guidance of Mr. Mulroy in very effective organisation of the event.
The 45 runners selected from the trials did the school proud this Wednesday as they competed in the Louth Sports Partnership running event for 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class pupils. Well done to all competitors!
St. Joseph’s CBS Gaelic football squad have also had a very promising start to the season with good training sessions on Thursdays and a successful kick off to the campaign with a narrow victory over Ardee who always prove to be very difficult opposition. Tús maith leath na hoibre.
