In advance of the Parent Association 5K Run in Slane Castle on Sunday the 8th of May, pupils from 1st to 6th classes have been out on the new school field running their legs off each lunch break for the last week and a half. Davy has marked out the field into a 400 metre track and the pupils have 25 minutes to run as many laps as they can.
Each pupil has a log sheet and they log their distance each day. On the pupil log sheet it has an estimated challenge of six laps per day but many have been completing a lot more. Pupils from 6th class are co-ordinating the event and are calling to all classes each Friday to follow up on progress over the week. Well done to all the pupils.
