Meath Primary Schools Sports

 

Athletics has been popular in the school since 1987 when we sent a team to the Meath Primary Schools’ Sports in Dunboyne for the first time.

We have been successful over the years winning gold, silver and bronze medals for sprinting, relays, long throw and long jump. It is always a great day out and a fantastic opportunity for the children to represent their school.









Community Games

 

All of our pupils are encouraged to take part in the local Community Games finals each year and one of our pupils won a silver medal in the All Ireland Finals in Athlone in 2011.


Cross Country

 

In November we send a team of boys and girls to the Cross Country races in Bellewstown where schools take part for the sheer fun of racing around the racecourse. Certificates are handed out to all competitors. All finishers are placed and team positions are allocated. Our girls’ team finished second last year.
