Scoil Mhuire Gan Smál’s Sports Day

Scoil Mhuire Gan Smál’s Sports Day took place last month, having been rescheduled due to bad weather. Staff and students hoped and prayed for a beautiful day and ,thankfully, all prayers were answered and the sun shone. A range of activities took place on the day such as sprints, relays, long jump, shot put, gladiator, crossbar challenge, basketball shots and matches. Every student took part in every event, earning points for themselves and their classes, and prizes were awarded to students who earned the most points, with an overall award being presented to a boy and a girl for their outstanding display on the day. Leaving Certificate students continued a long standing Scoil Mhuire Gan Smál tradition and participated in Sports Day wearing some very unusual sports gear! Batman and the Joker fought their battle on the pitch instead of on the streets of Gotham for the day, and one student dressed as his hero Mr. Moylan, the resemblance was just uncanny! A huge thank you to all teachers and students who participated in what was a fantastic day showing the great sporting talent of the students.
