Congratulations to our super fit pupils who were crowned the fittest National school in Ardrahan when they won the Battle of the Blues competition.  The competition was organised by Aoife Lynskey, PE teacher in Gort Community school; who were winners of the fittest secondary school in Ireland in 2018.  The event was sponsored by the Bank of Ireland and Anne Maloney from the Gort Branch presented our pupils with their prize.
For the past six weeks the pupils from 3rd to 6th class ran 1km and 1st and 2nd class ran 500m before school every morning in the school grounds under the supervision of Mrs Kelleher.  They also did a number of circuit classes each week by Ms Callanan (Principal).
The pupils were also kept very active with their annual Basketball tournament run by Mrs Kelleher at small break and lunch time sports; Camoige by Ms Tannion, Girls Gaelic football by Ms Carr, Boys Gaelic football by Mr Healy and Hurling and Athletics by Mrs Kelleher.
Well done to all the staff and pupils involved.
