St. Conleth’s Leading The Race In The AIJS

Is there a busier junior school in the country? Last week we hosted the AIJS Debate and, once we translate all that rhetorical hyperbole into regular old English, we will give you a report on that Ciceronian contest.  This week it was the AIJS Athletics meet and no better man than Mr. Kilcommons to give us a run-down on the event:

St. Conleth’s Junior School hosted the 2016 AIJS Athletics competition on Wednesday 27th in Irishtown Stadium. Over 250 athletes from Junior Schools all over Dublin braved pebble sized hailstones to take part. The standard of running, jumping and throwing was very high throughout the afternoon. As the host school we were delighted to boast the winners of the shot putt and 4th Form 150 metres. Castlepark Boys and Teresians girls took home team awards and this year’s overall winner was Mount Anville. A big thank you to the Junior School parent volunteers and Shay Keenan as always for organising the event.
