Rugby Blitz

The boys from 5th and 6th took part in a rugby blitz during the week before the midterm break. This was the culmination of several weeks of training for the lads who worked with a Connacht Rugby skills coach every week to help them with the basic skills and rules of the game. They loved the experience and had great fun at the blitz which took place in Loughrea Rugby Field. Lots of the lads are hoping now to continue on with Loughrea Rugby Club over the winter which is a great way to keep active during the next few months.

Our 6th class boys have just finished this year’s Cycle Right cycling course and all passed with flying colours. Leroy and Richard were back again this year to out the lads through their paces. This year they even taught three of our boys how to cycle for the first time. The lads all really enjoyed the course and can’t wait to put their new road safety tips into action.

The deeper side was for stronger swimmers and the shallow end for weaker swimmers .You had to work on breathing,strokes,and lifeguard duty. We left at 11 o’clock and came back 1:30.
