European Week of Sport 2016



The European Week of Sport aims to promote sport and physical activity across Europe. The week is for everyone, regardless of age, background or fitness level.

 Irish SCHOOLS are asked to promote physical activity in whatever way that they can during European Week of Sport. The focus of the week should be on FUN and INCLUSIVE physical activity.

#BeActive is a great way to kick start the school year.

This year we started  Athletics 2014 in February. We practiced all different events like high jump , relay , sprints , long distance and so on . We went to Cross Country in St.Endas park. The girls had to run first. We had to run 1 lap and a half. There was a total of 250 girls running in the race. It was quite hard. Next was the boys race. They had to run 2 laps , which was even harder. We then went to Santry on the 26th May and the 28th May.On the first day we did long distance, high jump,long jump,hurdles and shot put. We had three winners on that day. Amin from 4th class doing hurdles and Chris from 5th and Jack from 6th class both doing high jump. They all won bronze. On the second day we did relay and sprints. We had no winners but we tried are best which was the main thing. After that our Athletics was over and we were quite sad but also happy that we were apart of the athletics team 2014.
