European Sports Week

G4 got off to a very active and energetic start to the new year during our whole-school European Sports week. We tried some new sports for P.E. such as Handball and Spikeball. During the week we had our lunch time workouts and we even had a challenge the teachers day! It was so much fun! Here in 4th class, we love being active and exercising!!

Flag Raising Ceremony

On Monday we celebrated the school receiving our 5th Green Flag and our first Active Flag. After raising the two flags, both committees enjoyed lunch in Scholars as a well deserved treat.

This week saw the Active Schools Committee introduce even more activity to our break times.

G3 Gymnasts

Well done to the boys in G3 and Ms. Dillane who have been working really hard in P.E. to improve their gymnastic skills.

The boys have worked individually and in groups to improve their balance, movement, flexibility and fitness!

Rio might come a bit too soon for the boys in G3 but if they keep improving we may have some future Olympians in our midst!IMG-20160209-WA0000 IMG-20160209-WA0001 IMG-20160209-WA0002 IMG-20160209-WA0003 IMG-20160209-WA0004 IMG-20160209-WA0005 IMG-20160209-WA0006

Fifth Class Athletic Coaching!!

Our fifth classes recently visited the Lourdes Stadium to take part in some athletics training!! The boys had great fun trying out a number of different events. A big thank you to all the coaches from Boyne A.C. who put the lads through their paces.

Louth F.A.I 5-a-side Competition

Two teams from sixth class represented our school at the recent Louth F.A.I 5-a-side soccer blitz. Our teams, managed by Mr. O’Reilly, performed superbly.

Our red team topped their group with an unbeaten run while our green team were very unlucky to loose out on second place in their group by a single goal.

Our red team qualified for the final stages of the competition and finished in a very respectable third place overall!

 

Well done to all the boys who took part. They represented our school brilliantly and played each game in a spirit of sportsmanship and fairness!!
