Lá Spóirt is one of the biggest family events in The Coláiste. As part of our Wellness Week 2019, we are kick-starting our year with Lá Spóirt. It is a great opportunity to encourage dáltaí to try out various sporting activities and compete as part of their Rang group.
This year, we will continue with a similar set up as previous years, with the Junior Lá Spóirt (1st - 3rd Year) being held in St. Colmcille’s GAA facilities in Pilltown and Senior Lá Spóirt taking place on our CNI school grounds. We are very grateful to St. Colmcille’s GAA club for their continued support and generosity in sharing their excellent facilities with us.
The date chosen for Lá Spóirt is Friday 20th Meán Fómhair (September) 2019.
An Roinn Corpoideachas (The P.E. department), with the much appreciated support from all staff, have invested a lot of time in planning for a thoroughly enjoyable lá, however, the day is weather dependent. A text will be sent by 7am on Friday 20th if the day needs to be cancelled. If there is any chance of rain, Lá Spóirt will be cancelled and a normal school day will proceed. If this occurs please ensure daltaí wear formal school uniform as a full timetable of classes will take place.
As always a normal school day timetable will apply for La Spóirt (8.48am to 1.07pm as it is a Friday).
To facilitate this day, we ask parents/guardians to support if possible, by transporting your child (if 1st -3rd Year) to and from St. Colmcille’s GAA field (Pilltown) for both morning drop-off and evening pick up. We have organised that most school buses will provide a drop-off and pick-up at Pilltown for the Juniors as well as the school grounds for Seniors. If you cannot drop your children to Pilltown there will be a shuttle bus running from the school. The shuttle bus arrangement is only in circumstances that daltaí cannot organise transport to Pilltown. This transport arrangement cannot extend to the full school and your support in dropping and collecting daltaí to Pilltown is extremely important and appreciated. If availing of this service, please be at the school early as the last shuttle will depart from the school at 8.40am.
Please note full Coláiste na hInse Corpoideachas (PE) uniform must be worn for Lá Spóirt. This includes CNI tracksuit bottoms or CNI shorts and CNI t-shirt/CNI jumper. All daltaí need to bring a packed lunch and water as the canteen will only be available for Senior daltaí.
Due to the nature of Irish weather, it is also important that daltaí are prepared for a range of circumstances. Daltaí should bring sun cream, a rain jacket and a spare change of clothes.
The Rolla (roll) will be taken at both locations.
We thank you for your continued support.
