Play Like a Champion!

On the 13th May all of the 5th classes went over to Portlaoise College and participated in a basketball tournament. The weeks previous to this, Mr. O’Neill trained us and taught us how to play basketball.

When we arrived, we all lined up with our class and found out who we were playing. It was boys vs boys and girls vs girls. Each class group had the opportunity to play one another before reaching the semi-finals and finals. The teams that won the most games were in the final.

Ms. Fitzpatrick’s girls and Ms. Dalton’s boys won the finals. After the final, there was an award ceremony. People received medals for trying their best, while the best players received a basketball each. A great day was had by all.
