An Cuan Dáltaí Enjoy Day on the Beach

Last Wednesday 16th May saw the students from An Cuan venture down to Bettystown beach for their PE class to take advantage of the sunshine and warm weather. They took part in a mini sports day, competing in the 100m sprint, the sack race and the 'spud and spoon' race, which seemed the safer alternative to the traditional egg and spoon! Victors of the 100m sprint and sack race emerged

quite easily, while the winner of the spud and spoon race was harder to gauge. After a couple of trial runs with the rules being looked on as 'guidelines', out third race allowed us to find winners of 1st, 2nd & 3rd place. The day was topped off by an ice cream, and a stroll through the dunes taking in the views of the golf course, to relax after all the excitement. A lovely day was had by all.
