School Sports Day

Every year we have our Sports Day up at the GAA pitch in Rathnew.

We do lots of activities such as:

  • obstacle course
  • gaelic football
  • tag rugby
  • relay races
  • parachute
  • pin the clothes
  • bouncy castle
  • sprint races
  • egg and spoon race
  • sack race
  • three legged race
  • face painting
Thanks to everyone who helps out at the sports day including;
  • the parents who help bring the gear up to the pitch and bring it back to the school again afterwards
  • those who hold the finish line and obstacle course tunnels in place
  • the parents who grab the winners and 2nd and 3rd place girls at the finish line and record the names
  • those who help with activities, e.g., Edwina who mans the Gaelic Football station
  • the parents who organise the refreshments for the children
  • the parents who attend the sports day to watch and ensure it is an extra special day for all the children involved
