Every Friday, rain, hail or shine, boys and girls from SNCN take part in athletics training at Erin’s Own GAA grounds. The athletics programme is open to all boys and girls from 2nd class to 6th class. It is led by Niall McIntyre with support from the staff at SNCN.
During the training sessions children take part in long distance running, sprints and relays, with the focus on enjoyment and personal improvement from week to week. We also hold an in-school athletics competition and, as a culmination of the children’s hard work throughout the year, in June we hold our very own ‘SNCN Olympics’!
