Yes, like the Royal Marines, our Junior School Conlethians are successful on all fronts and in all environments! Russell Bolger recently qualified for the U-12 Optimist Sailing Team, representing Ireland at the UK nationals in Wales this summer (following in the footsteps of his brother, and top sailor, Trevor). You can see Russell below, with his boat (sail no. 1502) behind him. Coincidentally the Junior School Sailing club starts its sessions at the RSGYC today.
And our golfers enjoyed the fairways, greens and brunch at the Hollypark Invitational at Charles. As parent Jane Byrne reports:
The boys on the St. Conleth’s Golf Team were so well behaved at Charlesland GC . It was a lovely event – nine schools, including Willow, St. Michael’s, St. Gerard’s, Scoil San Treasa, St. Brigid’s and Hollypark- took part. It was followed by a formal set of speeches, prizes and a lovely brunch. Louis won a prize for closest to pin. They hope to make it an annual event. Our boys won a spot prize of a free group golf lesson!
