Boys Football Kicks Off the Year in Style in Bray

Thursday, 29th September saw some fine footballing talent in the 5th and 6th Class Boys Allianz Football Participation Blitz in Bray Emmets. It was a sunny autumnal day and conditions were perfect for playing fast-paced and entertaining football. The beauty of participation blitzes is that teams play in a non-competitive environment which encourages an atmosphere of teamwork and creativity, but most of all joy in playing the game.

The boys from KPS made the most of the opportunity to practise their skills. Four matches in total were played, against Gaelscoil Uí Chéadaigh, St. Fergal’s, Newtown and St. Cronan’s.

The boys represented KPS with pride linking in well as a team, showing some great skill and most importantly, thoroughly enjoying the day.

KPS: L. O’Toole, S. Fernandes, N. McCoy, D. Kelly, E. Kelly, A. McLeavey, R. O’Brien, F. Jayawardene, S. Byrne, B. Stapleton, R. O’Brien, J. Cartstairs, E. Mallon, E, Hatton.


First Time Representing KPS - A Special Day for the 3rd Class Girls

The storm cleared and made way for a fine day of football on Wednesday 20th October in Bray Emmets GAA grounds. The excitement of the 3rd class girls was palpable as we set off from KPS. We played 3 matches in total against St. Brigid’s, Greystones Educate Together National School and Roundwood. The girls represented KPS with style, played well as a team and their skills improved with each match. Undoubtedly these girls will don the KPS jersey in the future!

KPS: E. O’Reilly, S. Morrey, F. Odiose Crean, E. Delaney, M. Godfrey, E. Murphy, I. Doherty, C. Magee, M. Cadden, N. Carstairs, J. Hayes, E. Reynolds and E. Flood.

Thanks also to O. McDermott, 6th class, who did a super job on her first outing as a Young Whistler.

3rd and 4th Class Boys Gaelic Football Team Have a Ball in Bray

On Thursday the 27th of October some of the boys from 3rd and 4th class braved the wet weather to take part in the Allianz Gaelic Football Participation Blitz in Bray Emmets. Despite the wet weather, the boys got stuck in to each and every game that they played. The boys from KPS displayed excellent team work as they encouraged one another and ensured that everyone was involved in the game. Everyone in the team showcased some excellent soloing and hand passing skills within each game and there were some very impressive kicks over the bar.

The KPS team played four matches in total against Holy Rosary, St.Brigid's, Gaeilscoil na gCloch Liath and Gaelscoil Uí Chéadaigh. The aim of the day was to ensure that everyone on the team had the opportunity to engage in matches where the focus was on playing their best and doing their school proud.

Thank you to our two young whistlers from 6th class (R. O’Brien and R. O’Brien) who also came on the day to help out with the smooth running of each game.

Well done to all of the boys involved. They did themselves and their school proud with their comradery and perseverance. It was great to see each team member enjoy the day.

KPS Team: D. Dutton, D. Hammond, Z. Mahon-Poutch, E. Rodrigues, M. Berry O'Brien, É. Owens, A. Finnegan, B. Treacy, M. O'Brien, G. Byrne, N. Hennessy and O. Kennedy.

Silky Skills on Show at 5th and 6th Class Girls Football Blitz

KPS played the rescheduled 5th and 6th class girls football blitz in Bray Emmets on Thursday November 10th.
