Every September we enter the Kilkenny City Inter-schools cross country competition. The children practice at home and at school for the event. The trials are conducted at school and 14 fastest girls from 4th, 5th and 6th class are selected for the school team. The event is held in the Castle Park, and the children enjoy competing against the girls from all the city schools in Kilkenny.
St. John of God had great fun at the Cross Country competition in the Castle Park this year. St. John of God came 3rd overall in the girls competition. 6th class came 2nd and 5th class came 3rd! Niamh Ryan came 2nd in the sixth class girls race. Well done to all involved!
