Leinster Cricket Club is providing complementary coaching for the two 6th Classes over the next 4 weeks through half-hour slots during school hours. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the introductory session with Patrick, the instructor. This coaching follows a successful summer sports programme earlier this year which saw cricket feature as a popular sport among the older children.
The Taney A Boys’ football team were narrowly defeated in the final of the Dublin Southside Football League on 7th June against long-standing rival St. Mary’s Boys School. In a tightly-fought contest, our boys led 3-1 before St. Mary’s clawed back two goals in the final furlong. At 3 all, extra time delivered no more goals which led to a tense penalty shoot-out. Our boys were on the loosing end but we are so very proud of them to have reached the final and to have represented the school so well. Thanks to all those who came out in support.
The sun shone for the annual sporting spectacle of Taney Parish Primary School, held in Marlay Park on 2nd June. Juniors infants to 6th Class pupils showed off their athletic prowess through the sprint, relay, hoop, cup and ball, and obstacle races. The children delighted in their medals and well-earned post-race treats and the parents in the impressive display of skills and class camaraderie. Thanks to all those who volunteered and helped make Sports Day a success.
