On Tuesday 2nd December the girls from 3rd class took part in a Girls Futsal competition in Barnacaroll Sports Complex. The competition involved 3rd & 4th class children from schools in the surrounding areas battling against each other to progress to the county finals. Our girls performed admirably against teams from Bekan N.S., Barnacaroll N.S., Cloonlyon N.S. and Ballinrobe N.S. with most of the other teams made up entirely of 4th class children. They have made huge progress both individually and as a team. And this time next year they will be ready to show their true potential. It was a great day out and all the girls had great fun.
The following day on Wednesday 3rd the boys from 3rd also took part in a Boys Futsal competition. They were also up against 3rd & 4th class children from Bekan N.S., Barnacaroll N.S. and Gaelscoil De Burca progress to the county finals. The boys played excellently and enjoyed their day out. It was a great experience to play this exciting game and they learned some valuable lessons about team playing, passing, movement and never giving up.
We would like to thank Paul Byrne (FAI) for organising the excellent event and to wish the winning teams all the best in the upcoming finals. Finally a big thank you to all the parents who helped prepare the runners, boots, shin pads, football gear etc that all the children needed and also to all the parents who gave up their time to transport the children from Charlestown to Barnacaroll. As always we really appreciated your help.
