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.
In this school year the competition was held on the 26th September 2016. We won the shield for the best girl’s team. We won a gold medal in 5th class and bronze medals in 4th, 5th and 6th class. We were delighted with how we all ran and everyone really enjoyed taking part. We hope to do as well again next year.
