European School Sports Day (ESSD) 2021
The whole school was delighted to mark European School Sports Day on Friday September 24th, 2021. We were blessed with a dry & pleasant Autumn morning. The day kicked off in style with a European parade around the yard. Each class adopted a European country for the day & the pupils were decorated with headbands, banners & flags. All countries were cheered on by their neighbouring classes and the atmosphere was electric. The classes then broke off for a variety of activities- soccer, rugby, unihoc, parachute games, relays, javelin, basketball, beanbags and gymnastics to name but a few. The pupils also enjoyed dance, yoga & the 10 @ 10 in their classrooms along with designing sports posters to mark the European wide celebration. The highlight for many was our active disco on the yard when all classes got to break out their best moves! We were delighted to win a brilliant sports marker pack courtesy of Sport Ireland & Irish Primary PE for our efforts in the run up to the big day. The school also received a certificate of participation from the ESSD committee. We look forward to celebrating this annual event in the future.
