FAI 5-a-Side Tournament

This week, our school sent two teams to take part in the annual FAI 5-a-side Soccer Tournament. To say the teams did our school proud would be an understatement. Both teams qualified from their groups with good wins over tough opposition and both teams managed to reach their respective finals. Our boys team managed to score the most goals of any other team in the tournament. Unfortunately (and unbelievably), both teams lost their finals in penalty shoot-outs!

We were so impressed with the level of dedication, skill and sportsmanship shown by all players. Despite some questionable refereeing decisions, you all showed great composure and represented our school brilliantly.

A special mention goes to all of the children that have taken part in soccer this year. Honestly, we could have entered five teams, all of an equally high standard. We had to choose our squads by raffle but those children that missed out this year will be given priority next time around.
