As part of the LCVP program, The 5th years organised the Annual Archbishop McHale College National school 5 aside blitz again last Friday, 8th of May. Despite the wind and the rain, the day was a great success with 12 schools making up 31 teams of both boys and girls taking part, showing great skill determination and teamwork.
Congratulations to Kilconly NS who won both the boys and the girls competitions, the first time this has ever been done. Well done also, to all the 5th years who prepared for, organised and ran the day so well. We would also like to thank Johnny Morris Burke, representative for the FAI who also attended.
Second years went on their school tour this week to Lough Key Adventure Park in Boyle where they took part in the Zip-it Zip Wire course. Apart from one or two shaky moments they had a great time and everyone really enjoyed themselves. This trip gave students a chance to experience a new type of physical activity they had not experienced before. It was a great day and we hope to go again.
