Meath Primary Schools Sports
Athletics has been popular in the school since 1987 when we sent a team to the Meath Primary Schoolsâ€™ 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.
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.
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 girlsâ€™ team finished second last year.
