Thirteen medals for Ballinteer ETNS Athletics

On Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd of May, athletes from our school travelled to the Cuman na mBunscoil Athletics Competition in Santry. The children from 3rd and 4th Class have been training hard for the past few weeks and we had competitors is a variety of categories.

We are so proud of our team of athletes, who, through sheer determination, won 13 medals for the school. All medals were richly deserved and the winning athletes had to pass through qualifying heats before competing in finals in their respective categories, they really persevered.



We are so proud of the dedication, good spirit, fair play, teamwork and support shown by all of the competitors and their 4th Class supporters. We would like to especially thank Aongus, who organised and trained the teams.

A huge congratulations to all!!
