Today our 5th and 6th classes were represented by 28 classmates who took part at the Cumann na mBunscoile athletics event in UCD.
The team travelled by bus accompanied by Mr. Lowery and Ms.O’Brien and what a day they had!
Early in the afternoon, we were delighted to hear the great news that the U14 boys’ relay team had come 1st overall and were bringing home the cup for the first time in TEN years.
When the team returned to school they were greeted at the gate by all the 5th and 6th classes who clapped and cheered them home. We were all dazzled by the number of medals they were wearing!
In addition to those five medals of the U4 relay team, all of our relay teams reached the finals with the U12 girls’ team achieving medals for 3rd place.
In the individual sprints, Sadie Meade ran the race of her life to finish 2nd and Cathal Joyce and Ali Woods both won 3rd place medals.
Well done to all the athletes who gave it their very best today and a huge thanks to the organisers, Mr. Lowery and Ms. O’Brien who couldn’t stop smiling all afternoon.
