Sports Day June 21st 2017
Sports Day was a wonderful day, thanks to Mrs. Monson and the sixth class girls who organised a great variety of activities for all classes. Everyone worked up an appetite for the delicious burgers and hot dogs cooked by Mike.
The school basketball team took part in a basketball blitz in Cregmore school. They played 4 matches and really enjoyed playing against players from other schools.
1st Class has been doing lots of sport lately, including hurling, football, soccer and rugby. Our motto is “Be active, keep active, stay active!”
