On Thursday 11th April, Rang 3 (Seomra 27) took part in the Cork Primary Schools Athletics blitz in Neptune Stadium in conjunction with Cork Sports Partnership, Healthy Ireland & Cork City Council.
Rang 3 had received coaching for 4 weeks previous to the blitz in athletics. This programme introduces young children to athletics in a fun, engaging and non-competitive environment. The children developed their fitness, agility, co-ordination and balance. They developed these skills through participation in the shuttle bounce, shuttle run, javelin, long jump, 5 leaps, relays and target throws.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the coaching sessions and the blitz and received a certificate and a resource pack for the school on the day!
