Outdoor Adventure

In the Summer term the theme for PE is usually Outdoor Adventure. Here we see 3rd class pupils playing co operative games. Team work and good communication were essential skills in these games and it looks like fun played a large part too!

Santry 2019

Well done to our our pupils who travelled to Santry today to take part in the athletics  today. Mr Lowery and Ms. O’Brien spent the last few weeks selecting the fastest children in the school and then training them every day. Many of them reached the finals from the heats today and we had silver and bronze boys relay medal winners .  A few snaps below.

 

Soccer Tournament

Boys in 5th Class took part in a 5 a side football tournament today. They played really well and worked very hard as a team. The boys won 2 of their 3 matches even though their opponents were older . They also scored some fantastic goals. Well done boys!

Soccer Match in 6th

6th class Soccer team played a league match v St.Brigids Blanchardstown today in glorious sunshine.  Great performance from the team. Lost to a superb goal scored by Blanchardstown in the closing minutes. Head coach Mr.O’Donoghue particularly impressed with the teams attitude and work rate.

Cross Country Team

Cross Country continues yesterday in Porterstown on a very cold and windy day. The weather did not dampen the spirits of all the children who took part and Mr. Lowery reported lots of children achieved high placings and earned points for our team. The most important thing however is taking part, doing our best and having lots of fun. Well done.
