Our athletics programme was on in U.L. this year, and it finished in a tournament which took place on the 23rd of February. There were both track and field events. These are a few examples of the track events:
1+1 lap relay, 2 + 2 lap relay, 6 lap paarlauf, 4x1 lap relay, obstacle relay and the over/under relay.
The field events included:
the standing long jump, the standing triple jump, vertical jump, speed bounce, the chest push (1kg), and the soft javelin.
There were competitors from 4th, 5th and 6th class. Ahane National School's junior girls came second and the junior boys came third but unfortunately we did not qualify for the next round but it was a great achievement considering there was a lot of other schools involved. We were all well behaved and it was great fun. Everybody has learned so many new activities and skills during this P.E. program. We would all recommend this to other schools that didn't take part in this years program.
We would like to thank the very helpful P.E. students and coaches for all their hard work and time. They were very encouraging. It was a great experience overall.
