Friday 18th June saw the school host their annual Sports Day. What a day it was! The sun shone brightly as a large crowd of family and friends gathered at Páirc Seán Ó Caoilte to watch on as the boys and girls of Young at Heart and Sacred Heart P.S. took part in a fun packed range of events.
The now famous obstacle course kicked off the programme followed by the egg and spoon and sack races. After a morning break, the customised staff race entertained the crowd with the long throw competition also taking place. The sprints were scheduled and as ever, they produced some great finishes.
After lunch the go kart races drew huge interest with the Young at Heart sprint being a particular highlight. The long run showcased our distance runners with the dad and mum races gaining a record number of entries and competitiveness!
The day worked towards a close with the ever popular Tug of War. The egg toss followed and proved to be a great spectacle. The last event of the day was the penalty kick competition.
All in all, it was a most memorable Sports Day. It was great to see all our pupils participate and enjoy themselves so much. Thanks to all who attended to support the day. Thanks too goes to the school staff for their organisation and running of the event. It was great as well to have the Tin Can on site for food and refreshments.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
