Marathon Kids

Huge congratulations to all the pupils in Ms Ryan’s, Ms Mc Kelvey’s, Ms Mc Mahon’s and Ms Hartnett’s 5th and 6th classes who completed a marathon over the last 8 weeks. Marathon Kids is a programme organised by Fingal County Council, South Dublin County Council and Dublin City Council for 5th and 6th classes. The children ran laps of Forest Hills four times a week (increasing the distance each week) to complete their 26.2 miles. A fantastic achievement for all while learning about the benefits of sport.
