We in Kildalkey N.S. would like to wish all our students, staff and parents a very happy Easter! We look forward to seeing you again on the 24th of April!
Mini 7s Participation
Well done to our our two Mini 7s teams who competed in the hurling and football Mini 7s competitions this week.
The girls were first out on Tuesday, 4th April. Captained by Robyn, they captured two great victories against Boardsmill and Ballivor with two excellent performances. Unfortunately, a superb Gaelscoil na Bóinne team proved to be a hurdle too far and they ran out winners on a scoreline of 5-3 to 3-1. The girls can feel very proud of their performances on the day.
The boys were out next on Thursday, 6th April. Captained by the two Seáns, they beat Kilbride, Ballivor and then beat St. Michael's Trim in a lively encounter. Thus, they qualified for the Mini 7s finals on Wednesday, 26th April in Dunganny. Well done to the boys today and best of luck in their finals.
Mini 7s Football 2017
Well done to the boys' football Mini 7s team, who won their group today, Tuesday March 14th.
Playing some great football, they won their four matches, beating Athboy, Ballivor, Boardsmill and Rath Cairn on the way. Captained by Alex, they can be very pleased with their day's work.
They are now through to the finals, which will be held on Tuesday 21st in Dunganny at 3.00.
MDL Soccer 2017
Well done to the boys and girls from 5th and 6th class who took part in the MDL soccer competition this year.
The boys played on Friday, 10th March. The A team, captained by Gareth, did extremely well winning two games by margins. The last match, against Yellow Furze, went the way of the Navan team but the boys can hold their head high. The B teams, backboned by many from 5th class, battled bravely but lost a couple of tight games by one goal margins. However, they will have learned from the experience and will look to go one better next year!
The girls played on Monday, 13th March. The A team were in a very difficult group. Though they did well to get a good draw with Ballivor, they lost both of their other games to very good teams.
The B team, again backboned by many from fifth class, made it through to the quarter finals. With Grace saving everything that came her way in goals and Caoimhe scoring many goals, they did extremely well and were unlucky to be beaten in the quarter finals.
Well done to both teams on their performances and their behaviour, both of which was excellent.
The Credit Union Quiz 2017
Well done to the students from 5th and 6th class who recently competed in The Credit Union Quiz. A huge congratulations to Hannah, Charlie, Alex and Brandon from 6th class who came 4th overall out of 54 schools. We would like to wish them the best of luck this weekend as they move onto the next round.
