6th Class Boys Soccer

The 6th Class soccer team played 3 games against Kildare schools. Our first match was against Ballymany school in Newbridge.

We played Ballymany in Newbridge Town astro. It was a very tight game. The score finished 2-2. We started the match brightly and got a deserved goal by Jake Connolly. Around five minutes later Ballymany scored to go level. Both teams came close to scoring but the  game finished 1-1 at the end of the first half.

We came out strong in the second half and dominated the first 15 minutes and Cameron Keane scored a brilliant goal to get us ahead. We fought very hard but they scored a fluky goal near the end. It was a great performance from the team. We are currently in preparation for the 5 aside blitz in Kilcullen astro.

Mini Scientist happens each year. A team can be made up of three or four people. Every team asks them selves a question and they’ve got four weeks to answer it. On the day everybody presented their investigation to the judges. The winners of Mini Scientist of 2019 were Kate, Ailbhe, Chloe and Lucy and their investigation was ‘What is the science behind rollercoasters?’. They will move on to the next round and we wish them the best of luck.👩‍🔬
