On Tuesday our school held a whole school marathon on the basketball court. Each class came out to run sponsored laps of our basketball court in the hope of completing a full marathon by the end. Our time as a whole school ended up at 2 hours 39 minutes 10 seconds. Our amazing PTA had a drinks station set up for all our marathon runners to cool off after their lap followed by some very welcome refreshments back in the classroom. Each child recieved a golden medal of participation. We raised over €8000 for our school which we hope to use for the purchase of yard equipment and our new outdoor classroom to keep our yards active. All of the children had great fun participating and are already thinking about beating their time for next year.
