This year we held our Junior Sports Day on Thursday the 18th of June and our Senior Sports Day on Friday the 19th of June! We were based in different areas of the school, Mountjoy Square Park and Hardwicke Street Astroturf Pitch. We had a great time and we were blessed with the weather as it was so nice! We had an amazing time trying out new sports and activities and working together as a team! We also had a lunchtime Sports Quiz! Thank you to everyone who helped out! Well done to everyone!
Over the last 5 weeks we have been learning about road safety for cyclists. We have learned how to turn, indicate, over take a parked car and to expect the unexpected. Doctor Bike (also known as Eoin) has been teaching us every Wednesday for five weeks.
We wore helmets to protect us if we fell. My favourite challenge was cycling between the cones. It wasn’t easy! We had a great time learning about cycling and road safety.
Remember: EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED!
