Sports Day

Patrician Academy Sports Day

The late but very heavy April Showers did nothing to dampen the spirits of the Academy Students as they took to the field in their droves last Friday to participate in what has become one of the highlights of the year – The School Sports Day

 

Junior classes were pitted against each other in an attempt to gain points for their class. Everything from athletics to GAA to novelty events were on offer. Senior classes had a very serious soccer tournament which resulted in a win for a bunch of brave fifth year students. Trophies for this tournament were kindly sponsored by the parents association. The winning class at Junior level will be announced this week Р and will enjoy a trip to the cinema. Much thanks must go to Mr. Pat Heffernan sports co-ordinator in the school, who organised this fantastic day.
