Well done to our athletics team who came back from Santry yesterday with plenty of medals in the Dublin Primary School Sports Competitions. Individual medals included gold for Tommy and silver for Josh in the sprints while Sam ran a great 600m to finish 3rd on the line. Daire won his race taking home another gold medal for Joeys. Our two relay teams had practiced baton changing for a few weeks and it paid off with a gold for the U12 team and a close silver for the U14 team. Well done everyone!
Huge congrats to Bobby Quirke and Jamie Keating on getting their prize winning ball wall design painted by graffiti artist Joanne Murphy onto our local Faugh’s Hurling Club ball wall. What a fabulous design!
The senior boys played their first soccer match in the schools’ soccer league for 2022 yesterday and came home with a win. They played against St Pat’s and had a comfortable win. We want to thank Larkview FC for the use of their all-weather pitch. It was great to see the smiling faces – supporters included.
Also we are very proud and happy with the performances and dedication of the boys during the Cumann na mBunscol Gaelic football season which finished this week. We wish to thank the teachers, Mr. Kelly, Mr. O’Doherty, Mr. O Brien, Ms. Byrne and Ms. Hahesy who have helped with the training and supervision.
Many thanks to the parents for their co-operation with drives to matches and training.
Hurling and athletics will take place after the Easter holiday.
We are delighted to be back to our normal 8.50 am start in the morning. The boys are allowed to come in just after 8.30 am to have a little play in the yard together. It was such a lovely atmosphere in the yard this morning as the sun shone and all had smiling faces.
The school senior football teams have returned to training and on Thursday we played our first match in two years against a very strong St. Pius team. There will be a short season of matches over the next few weeks and we are hoping hurling and athletics will resume after Easter.
It was great to get back out on the pitch this week with the schools Gaelic football teams. Boys from both 6th classes braved the elements this week in Terenure College. Ms. Byrne, Mr. O’Doherty, Mr. O’Brien, Ms Hahessy and Mr. Kelly will coach the teams this year, while Mr. Ring will oversee all proceedings. We are hoping for a fun filled season where the boys can get back to competitive games and a bit of normality. The GAA teams are open to all boys in sixth class at the moment. All boys in sixth class are more than welcome to get involved and play a few games this year. If anyone wants to join, please speak to any of the coaches or Mr. Ring.
Having fun rapping as gaeilge for feel good Friday!
Senior Infants were working on their fundamental movement skills today. They were controlling a ball using various body parts. Developing manipulative skills at an early age is so important. Well done boys!
