Cumann na mBunscol Sports Day 2023

This year’s Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Sports Day took place in Charlesland Sport and Recreation Park, Greystones on Wednesday 7th June. There was great excitement in the lead up to this event as it had not taken place since 2019.

The day began with a parade around the track with each school displaying their banner, wearing their school’s colours with pride and singing 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. Well done to all the boys and girls who qualified to represent KPS and did so impeccably, they should be very proud of themselves.

A huge well done to everyone who took part, many of whom have seldom, or maybe never, ran on a track before so this was a wonderful experience for them. We hope it gives them a grá for it and that they will be 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 this that children remember and the Cumann na mBunscol Sports Day is one such memory to cherish.
