Sports in School
Mr Beirne, Mr Lynch, Ms O’Neill and Ms Stevenson train our boys’ and girls’ football teams. Our school teams train every week and we play in local leagues.
Mr Loughlin and Ms Farrelly train our soccer teams.
FAI soccer coaches teach new soccer skills, drills and games.
Children from 3rd and 4th class competed in the FAI Futsál Tournament in Gormanstown last year.
Show Racism the Red Card
Last year’s sixth class took part in the FAI initiative “Show Racism the Red Card”.
A group of teachers have completed Be Active training. Each year 2nd class are given the opportunity to learn new sports skills alongside teachers and parents.
We have a Skip Hop day every year. A Skip Hop instructor teaches 1st – 6th Class how to skip in different ways. The children really enjoy this day and the demonstration at the end of the day. Skipping is a fun way for children (and adults!) to keep fit.
We have a tennis coach teaching children from 1st – 6th Class. The classes start off with basic skills and get more challenging as the children progress.
Ms O Neill trains our athletics teams. The children compete in cross country competitions.
