Cross Country Event at Fairyhouse Racecourse

Well done to all the children who regularly walk and run, around our pitch and running track, in the school.  Many boys and girls are working on building up their fitness.

When the opportunity arose recently to take part in a cross country event, lots of children in fourth, fifth and sixth classes participated in trials and worked on improving their personal best.  You should all be very proud of yourselves!

Four teams were chosen at u11 and u13 level to compete in a competitive Cumann na mBunscol race at Fairyhouse Racecourse.


Every child ran to the best of their ability on the day.  It was great to see comradery amongst the boys and girls, cheering each other on, and everyone showed grit and determination to complete the race.

Certificates were awarded to all and they were a credit to Kentstown NS.  We look forward to more cross country and athletic events in 2023.
