Sport is hugely beneficial for children. By playing sports our children have another opportunity and context to utilise their STKEV values and competencies of Self Awareness, Teamwork, Kindness, Engagement in their learning and Versatility.
They also develop physical skills, exercise, make new friends, have fun, and improve self-esteem. At St. Kevin’s we promote individual and team games in competitive and non-competitive structures.
The focus is on participation and enjoyment. We have strong links with our local sports clubs and coaches to promote the importance of physical activity for all our pupils. As well as various after-school sporting teams, we participate in coaching and competitions in the following areas:
- Gaelic Football
- Hurling and Camogie
- Cross Country Running
Avondale Athletics 2019
On Tuesday 22nd October, 51 athletes from 3rd to 6th class represented St. Kevin’s at the individual Cross Country event in Avondale.
The day was a great success and St. Kevin’s returned with a great number of medals. More importantly, our students represented us with pride and determination. Well done to everyone who took part.
A special thank you to Ms. Lambkin and Mr. Flynn for organising the event and to the parents that joined us on the day.
