Children took part in lots of activities such as obstacle courses, morning badminton club, morning dance parties, yoga, skipping and hula hoop playground games, breakfast basketball, laps of honor,and poc fáda competitions.

During Active Week 2017, our senior boys hurling team represented our school in the Cumann na mBunscol finals. It was a fantastic day as our boys won!

Our school basketball team also represented our school during Active Week in the National Basketball Arena. Over two days, our boys team came second in their competition and our mixed and girls teams played some fantastic matches.

Sports Day was a great success on Thursday 15th and everybody had a very active but enjoyable day.

Well done to all of our boys and girls for helping to keep Scoil Maelruain Senior as active as possible
