Last Week Parents came in to help the children run/walk a mile in school yard. It was great to see so many people out in the fresh air getting active.
Scoil Mhuire is delighted to have a rich tradition in sport and continues to encourage all pupils to have a happy, healthy and active school life. We pride ourselves in providing a variety of sports to our pupils and believing that a healthy mind coincides with a healthy body.
Well done to Dillon and Emmet Cousins on representing Scoil Mhuire in the Irish Minor Schools swimming championships yesterday in The NAC in Dublin. Both boys qualified last month to swim in the Irish Minors competition. Dillon swam 50m backstroke and 50m butterfly in the 12year old age group achieving personal best times and finishing just outside the finals.
Emmet also swam 50m back and 50m fly in the 7-9year old age group and qualified for the finals in both events, he finished in 4th place in the back and achieved a personal best time and finished in 7th place in the fly.
Both boys are members of Wexford Swimming Club and we're all very proud of them
Scoil Mhuire pupils are continuing to clock up the miles as part of the daily mile challenge. The school yard is very busy each day with classes running or walking the nine laps that make up a mile. We are now close to 200 miles and our overall target is 500 miles. So keep it up everybody!!!...
On Sunday 24th of January a team of runners from Scoil Mhuire staff took part in the Arachas Ferrycarrig 5 mile road race. The team of 8 teachers won the corporate section of the race, beating other local business teams. We are very proud of the great effort and personal bests achieved on the day. Well done to all involved.
