Cross Country Champions!
On the 19th of October 2018, our Cross Country team took part in an event in Tymon Park organised by our neighbours St. Damian’s. Forty children from 3rd to 6th class took part. There were five other schools there on the day.
Each class level had their own race and distances ranged from 400m for 3rd class up to 900m for 6th class. Many girls and boys from Holy Spirit won medals for coming 1st, 2nd and 3rd which was fantastic.
Every runner’s result mattered for the overall team score. Big congratulations to all of the boys and girls as they showed great determination and really pushed themselves towards the end of the races.
At the end of the day the cup was presented to the team with the best overall result. The scores were extremely close. The winners for 2018 were HOLY SPIRIT. Great celebrations and singing followed and the children were thrilled to bring the cup back to the school. We thank St. Damian’s for a great day out and we look forward to next year’s competition.
Every child in the school will get another opportunity to try out for the school Cross Country team in January. We will then take part in the South Dublin Cross Country series which takes place from February to May. Keep up the great training everyone!
