Boys football team train this Friday after school. Match away to Glynn on Monday and at home to Kennedy Park on Wednesday.
The boys Rackard League football team had their first match this week. They played away to Piercestown. Although they were not victorious, the boys gave a great account of themselves. They tried hard from the word go and never gave up even when the home side were on top. Some of the team really put their bodies on the line. They really did their school proud and will really learn from this match. Best of luck to them in their upcoming matches.
Sports day took place on Thursday 4th of June, thanks to the fantastic weather. Junior infants to 3rd stayed in the school while 4th to 6th went to the college field. Some of the activities involved included egg and spoon race, sack race, orienteering, wellie throwing, rounders and obstacle courses galore. There was a great atmosphere in the school with all the parents looked after with tea and scones. A big thank you must go to the coaches from VTOS which is part of Wexford GAA. Despite being in the middle of exams 10 coaches came up to help out. Kim and Alan are regulars in our school and we were delighted with their help yesterday. Also we had underage players from Clonard GAA in to help. 5 of these were past pupils and it was great to see them giving back to the school. It is good to see them all involved with their local club also. At the end of the day we had awards, the raffle and to finish we had the winning team. By a margin of two points the blue team were the winners. All the children had a really fun day and everybody took part in the right spirit....
