21 Feb

Our 5km cycle on Tuesday last was a great success with a great crowd taking part.  The beautiful weather on the day helped add to the carnival atmosphere. 

After assembly Garda Chris O Meara, who came out on his day off, gave us a safety talk before we we set off.  Local Sergeant Mark Kelly and Senan Gardiner from An Taisce brought reflective arm bands and jackets for those who didn’t have theirs.  Most of the pupils from 5th and 6th Class took part along with parents Colm Brophy and Aileen Hoyne along with our youngest participant Saoirse.  Ms Hogan and Green School Co-ordinator Mrs Maher also took on the challenge.  Mr Hanamy followed behind to collect the jackets and jumpers that were discarded due to the exercise and good weather.


There was great camaraderie as the pupils cycled, and a healthy competitive attitude – to see who could climb the hills without getting off the bike.

Look through the slide show to see how the day was enjoyed by everyone – so much so it may become an annual event!


Thank you to our local Gardaí, An Taisce, parents who took part and also those parents who brought their children’s  bikes to school.
