Senior Sports Day (3rd- 6th Class)

Senior Sports Day, Friday 18th June 2021

Dear Parents,

We are delighted to be able to facilitate a Sports Day for the boys & girls this year.  Although, it will be different from other years it will none the less be a day to remember. 

Venue: Éire Óg

Cormac and the team have put a lot of work into preparing for this day.  To comply with DES and COVID guidelines the following are the arrangements for this year.

For 3rd & 4th Class

  • Children come to School at 9.00 am as normal
  • Children to be collected at 2pm from Éire Óg
  • Children walking home without a parent will need written permission

Pupils in 3rd & 4th Class will come to school as normal on Friday 18th June.  They will leave the school at 11.30am and walk to Éire Óg for their Sports Day.  Their Sports Day will take place from 12 noon to 2.00pm.  Parents will collect their children in 3rd & 4th Class from Éire Óg at 2.00pm. If you are not collecting your child and have given them permission towalk home, we will need an email/dojo message confirming this to be the case prior to 18th June.

Please note there is little or no parking around Éire Óg so you may have to use the Park n Ride facility or Shoreline. 

For 5th & 6th Class

  • Children should be dropped to Éire Óg at 9.20am for 9.30am start.
  • Please note there is little or no parking around Éire Óg so you may have to use the Park n Ride facility or Shoreline. 
  • Children will walk back to school at 11.30am
  • Children will remain in school until 2.40pm

Pupils in 5th & 6th Class should be dropped directly to Éire Óg at 9.20am for a 9.30am start on Friday 18th June.  Their Sports Day will take place from 9.30am -11.30am.  They will walk back to School after their Sports Day.  Children in 5th and 6th Class will finish school at 2.40pm on the day. Children are not permitted to go home at 11.30am from Éire Óg. 

We are really looking forward to a fun filled day.  Hopefully, the sun will be shining.  A reminder of the importance of your child wearing suncream and bringing enough food and water for this day. 

Unfortunately, the number of parents we can have helping on the day has been reduced considerably.  However, we still need some volunteers to help out.  If you are Garda Vetted and are free to walk with the children, please let their class teacher know ASAP. 

In keeping with DES guidelines and as in previous years we will be holding the Sports Day without the attendance of parents or family members. 

Again, we look forward to an enjoyable day and helping the children create lovely memories of their Sports Day.

Kind regards,

Ms. Costello
