Sports day 2021

posted Jun 18, 2021, 8:50 AM by Owen Breslin
After what has been a bit of a tough year for everyone, we were determined to make Sports Day 2021 our best ever!  On Wednesday last the boys and girls had one of the greatest sports days ever. 

As part of sports day, Killeigh NS held our inaugural Colour Run. Children ran in their class groups around the Killeigh walking track. At intervals around the track they were sprinkled with coloured dust. It was great fun and everyone got into the spirit of the day. As part of our fundraising efforts, sponsorship had been collected beforehand. We are very grateful to everyone who contributed so generously!

In addition to the Colour run, other activities included
  • inflatable basketball targets
  • novelty races
  • bubbles station
  • parachute
  • no mans land
  • rounders
  • Gaelic football
  • novelty games
  • obstacle course
  • disco room
  • BBQ
A huge amount of planning and effort went into preparing each station. We are very grateful to our wonderful staff for giving up their time to help out with this. The good news is that the children all had a ball. 

We are very grateful to members of our parents association for helping out on the day. We also appreciate the efforts that our BBQ master Paul Bergin went to in order to keep our young athletes fed. 

We particularly wish to thank Clodiagh Gaels for the use of their facilities for the colour run.
