Athletics News.

Congratulations to Aaron Cullen 3F and Craig Giles 4G who have both qualified for the All-Ireland Track and Field Competition which takes place in Tullamore on Saturday 3rd June.
Aaron finished first in his U16 Mile race. He ran a very tactical and fast race with a finishing time of 4 min 42 seconds. Aaron has grown into such a mature athlete that is improving his running with every race.
Craig won the 800m race and also received the FISEC Maastricht Cup, again a very tactical and fast race sub 2 minutes (1.58). Craig also competed in the 1,500m and placed second which qualifies him to compete in both races in Tullamore. To qualify in both races and to recover so quickly is a testiment to his dedicated approach to training every week.
The club and school are very proud that the boys will represent the school at such a prestigious sporting event. Best of Luck!!

Chocolatiers for the Day!

Transition Year students attended Butler’s Chocolate Factory on Monday 15th May. Students got a tour of the production line, sampled some handmade delicacies and decorated their own chocolate elephant. A great chocolate filled day was had by all. Thanks to Ms Tolan and Ms McWilliams.
