This year thirty five children represented St. Matthews in the Santry School’s Athletic Competition. This competition is held over two days, in the Morton Stadium, and the children have the opportunity to compete in both field and track events. St. Matthew’s National School were represented in the shot put, long distance, long jump, hurdles, sprints and relays. The competition was extremely tough this year, and we had two greatdays out, and even came home with some medals and a trophy! A huge thank you to all the parents who came to support on the day and congratulations to all thirty five athletes who did themselves and their school proud!
