Cumann na mBunscol Athletics at Santry
Following two very enjoyable days at Santry recently, we can take pride in the wonderful achievements of our school's athletics team. 54 children, in all, took part in the events and over the two days they gave an impressive performance. We were rewarded with several medals - for the following events: 500m, Long Jump, Shot Put and 4 X 100m relay. Well done to all of the children who participated!
"On Thursday 3rd June we went to Santry. As we went on the bus everyone was excited. As we arrived in Santry tensions were high. We made it up to the stands. The day was hot. First off there was a parade and after that there were sprints. Then came the relay races. Overall everyone had a great time. I would like to thank the teachers and the helpers for the great day. Two of our relay teams won silver medals and two won bronze." Andrew - 5th Class
