School Initiatives

Castaheany After-Schools Sports Club (Mondays):

We launched this new initiative in October 2016 and so far it’s proven highly enjoyable for all concerned. The weather has been kind to us so far, and the children have been trying out a variety of sports.

For now, it has involved our 3rd - 6th classes (3rd-4ths on 1 week, 5th-6ths on the other week)

All kids will are being asked to sample each of the taster sports for the first few sessions (cricket, Gaelic Football, Olympic handball & golf) before deciding on which ones to choose (soccer and basketball will be added to list of choices) going forward.

As a team, we discussed the challenge of maximising opportunities/access for girls, as historically boys have dominated mixed sporting activities - and came up with a solution whereby everyone trains together, then the girls will have the option of splitting into separate follow-up games. So girls, don’t be shy, do come along and get involved!  

Finally, a huge thanks must go to Joanna, Ben, Billy, Colm, Aisling, Fiona and Denise (and to Renata and her team of helpers who continue to run Athletics Club separately on a Wednesday) without whom none of our after-school sports in the school would be possible.

Yours in sport,
