Friday September 16th 2016 As part of National Fitness Day we held a Take-On-The-Teachers dodge ball competition, inter-class penalty competition and Mr. Lavin vs pupil penalty shoot-out.
Dodge-ball: Three matches were played. The teachers played 1st/2nd, 3rd/4th and 5th/6th. Despite the pressure of having to play three successive matches the teachers won all three games. So, a pretty embarrassing start for the pupils.
Inter-Class Penalty Shoot-out: Everyone got to take a penalty against Mr. Lavin or Mr. Musgrave. The class who scored the most was the winner. It was a tight, low scoring affair and resulted in 3rd/4th class winning.
Mr. Lavin vs Pupils Penalty Shoot-out: 5 pupils were chosen "at random" to take a turn in goals while Mr. Lavin took a penalty against them. With the score at 2 scored and 2 missed, Mr. Lavin stepped up against Jack McNamara for the deciding penalty. Mr. Lavin shot. Jack pounced. The ball hit the post and bounced out. Pupils win 3-2.
