Well we have finally reached Summer with May day tomorrow and the bank holiday weekend to enjoy! On this weekend each year the WOI Women’s Mini Marathon takes places usually in Castlebar but this year like many other events it is happening virtually. The Mini Mini is the children’s fun run that is held at this annual event. Our class have been amazing in this year doing their 2kms therefore I registered them for this event and today at school we completed our 2km in our fabulous Mayo Day t-shirts kindly given to us by Mayo Sports Partnership with great help from Deirdre Donnelly. This year the theme for the fun run is ‘Kids just run for fun’.
If you are in a position to, your child can complete the fun run over the weekend and if you wanted you can make a donation of €2 to a children’s charity of your choice. I have provided a 2021 race number where you can write in the hero you are running for. Mayo Sports Partnership are asking that you send your pictures and videos in to them of you or your child taking part if you want to share in this great celebration. Pictures can be emailed or posted on Social Media using hashtags #Mayoday #WOIMM
Our Christmas prayer service, featuring pupils from all classes was broadcast live from Carras Church which looks absolutely fantastic and is a credit to all involved. Happy Christmas everyone.
