Leitrim Primary Schools Athletics

Well done to the boys and girls from 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th classes who represented their school so well In Ballinamore on Wednesday. Everyone commented on how well they competed, the way they supported each other and how well-behaved and pleasant they were to deal with.

Thanks to Marie McGovern for her help in preparing the children for the event. Marie has given freely of her time and expertise this year and has voluntarily supported athletics and fitness in general, in the school. We cannot thank her enough.

We are delighted to say that the boys’ and girls’ teams from 3rd & 4th classes have qualified for the county final – the girls qualified in first place. The girls from 5th & 6th classes have also qualified for the county final – the boys narrowly missed qualification, coming in third place. This is a great result for the school – congratulations to all involved!

By the way, Cumann na mBunscoil matches are starting soon – the boys will have their first match on Monday, March 23rd.
