Sports Day – A Day to Remember!

A great day was had at the Cumann na mBunscol Sports Day. Well done to all who participated!
Sports Day – A Day to Remember!

This year’s Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Sports Day took place in Charlesland Sport and Recreation Park, Greystones on Wednesday 13thJune. The day began with a parade around the track with each school displaying their banner and wearing their school’s colours with pride. The parade culminated in a rousing round of applause for retiring Cathaoirleach, Jim O’Riordán, who has not missed a sports day in his career; then this was followed by Amhrán na bhFiann before events got under way. Events included individual races, team relays, tug of war, ball throw, long puck, long kick and long jump. KPS had representatives in every event and each participant must remember that it is a fantastic achievement to have qualified to represent their school. Well done! Many of the children competing have seldom, or maybe never, ran on a track before so this is a wonderful experience for them and we hope it gives them a grá for it so they come back again. The level of sportsmanship displayed on the day was truly remarkable. Children could be seen shaking hands at the end of events, congratulating each other on the podium and helping each other out. This lovely atmosphere of sportsmanship was a credit to them. It is days like Sports Day that children remember; and this day is one such memory to cherish. Special thanks to the teachers, parents, past pupils and volunteers who assisted, without whom the day would not have been such a success. The Sports Day is a day run by volunteers and without such good nature and teamwork it would not be possible. Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine!
