Boys’ gaelic football
We have initiated a link up with Shimna Integrated College to allow our pupils to experience GAA sports, through the Cuchulainn Cup, designed for schools with limited exposure to Gaelic games.
We also have a number of talented cross-country runners, who will be competing at district trials this year.
Additionally, the girls are able to join the girls’ football or tag rugby teams as well. We would consider having a boys’ netball team too if they were any good at it!
In Summer we switch to cricket and athletics. We also have a keenly contested Sports Day annually, where pupils compete to earn various form class and year group accolades.
