Town Sports 2018
Huge congratulations to all of the boys and girls who represented our school team in the Town sports on Tuesday 19th June. We are so proud of all of you and are delighted that we came joint first with St. Mary's.
This year's town sports event was organised by St. Mary's and involved five local schools; Abercorn, Ballydown, Bridge, Edenderry and. St. Mary's. What a fantastic morning of sporting talents and it was lovely to see and hear pupils and parents cheering on and encouraging each other.
A wonderful community event! Thank you to sponsors for the beautiful T-shirt that each athlete received and to St. Mary's for organising such a great event! As always these events don't just happen and we would like to extend a thank-you to to anyone who helped or supported in any way especially EVO soccer coaches.
