The upcoming 5K Run was officially launched in Slane Castle this week. Many thanks to Alex Mountcharles for giving up his time to be at the launch, as well as Mary Murphy from Meath Local Sports Partnership. Parents were also at the school this week accepting registrations for the run. We are getting very excited ! The pupils co-ordinating the initiative told us how it went just before the May week off.
“We call it the 5K running committee. Every Friday we go to the classes with homework passes for each class. We started with three passes but we increased it to five because of all the effort. The pupils who took part every day that week were in the draw. First and second class were brilliant. It was their PE as well. All classes did really well and every pupil participated at least one day a week. Well done to all the pupils. See you all at the Slane Castle Run.”
