Boy’s games run all year round for boys from 3rd to 6th class. The purpose is to create opportunities for pupils to get involved in sport and promote a healthy lifestyle. Pupils will also have the chance to represent their school in various competitions.
The main sports that we promote are Gaelic football, Hurling and Soccer. In September, our school team takes part in the Rackard league football competition. This involves pupils from 5th and 6th class. The Rackard league hurling takes place in March involving the same age group. We also take part in mini sevens football and hurling in March. Our 6th class boy’s enter the Fai 5 a-side tournament every April.
Throughout the year we give boys in 3rd and 4th class the chance to take part also, where the emphasis is on fun and participation rather than competition. We also provide information to children regarding local clubs and how they can get involved.
We would encourage each parent to enrol their child in a club as this will further enhance their skills and will in turn help teams in Scoil Mhuire. Each Spring we run a lunchtime league and any parent wishing to get involved should contact the school.
