A huge well done to our boys and girls who took part in the Boyne A.C Challenge Cup at the end of February. They did our school proud and won alot of medals along the way! It was a great experience for the children to run in the Lourdes Stadium! Also we can't forget Mr. Barnes who came first in the teachers race - a great role model for our pupils!
During February, Mark from "Skipnrope" visited our school and carried out skipping workshops for the 3rd,4th,5th and 6th classes. The children all had a lot of fun learning new skipping skills and tricks! Some children got to show off their new skills during assembly to the rest of the school! Huge thanks to Mark for visiting our school and making skipping such an enjoyable experience for our pupils!
