Monday 21st May our eager athletics team made their way to Morton Stadium in Santry to compete in the schools athletics event, organised by Cumann na mBunscol.
Children from 3rd, 4th and 5th class have been training over the last few weeks and were represented by; Arteom, Kaius, Filip, Mila, Lara, Brenda, Anya, Thaigh, Daniels, Ruby and our subs Aben and Karen. We had 6 students compete in the long distance – 600m on the track, with each of them enjoying their first experience of the discipline. We had two children compete in the shot putt and both showed excellent form and threw some great distances for their first time using a 3kg shot putt! Our third event saw two children take on the long jump, again a great experience and we were unlucky not to medal.
All the children and our subs had great day out and are eager to head back to Santry again next year and for a few of them on Thursday for sprints and relays.
