Well done guys!!

Well done 3rd, 4th,5th and 6th Class children took part in the first ever PRIMARY SCHOOLS TRIATHLON at the Sports Complex last Thursday!  The children had to swim 2 lengths of the pool, jump out and run to their bike for a 1.2 km cycle followed by 800m on the track, a tidy little run for an experienced athlete!! Coach Ross McGlynn and Therese Kilgannon from Sligo Sport and Recreation assisted by what seemed to be an endless army of volunteer marshals ran this amazing event like clockwork! 259 children in total took part,all of whom got a great big cheer and a medal for their efforts!! We are very proud of you.. Many thanks to Mr.Reilly, SNA Berni Mahon and Ms McNulty for their help in organising the children and a very bifg thank you to the Lyttle Family for their help with the bikes!!

Children from the senior school trained for 8 weeks under the guidance of Coach Ross Mc Lynn in the Duathlon after-school activity. On Monday 23rd March we hosted an event at Mercy College with the help of Teresa from Sligo Sport and Recreation Partnership. We were really proud of the children’s efforts on the day and are looking forward to making the Duathlon a yearly event.

Today was an exciting day as classes from third to sixth took to the stage for the Feis.

The standards were high which left the judges with the difficult task of picking winners.

Here we have some highlights from the day so we hope that you enjoy the vast talent that we saw today.

Tomorrow is the end of Seachtain na Gaeilge for us. But before that we will annouce the Art winners and yes: Gaeilgeoir na Seachtaine is being announced as well. We are all so excitied.

Best of luck to all.

A Visit to Sligo Abbey

Ms. Donohoe's Class, Ms. Sherry's Class, S.E.S.E  Tagged , , No Comments »

Fourth class visited Sligo Abbey today. Wandering through these ancient grounds, the children observed old tomb stones and sections of the old friary like the cloister and the dormitories. The children were especially interested in stories of secret passages and the “missing” bell from the bell tower! They also commented on the beautiful architecture around them.
