8 April 2019|Parents'

The annual 5k Fun Run organised by the Parents’ Association took place on Sunday 7th April. The event was held in the grounds of the school. After the early morning fog cleared, it turned out to be a beautiful Spring day and a good crowd turned out to support the event. The route began in the Quad area of the school followed by four loops of the College campus. Some well-earned refreshments greeted the runners upon completing the race in the famous Glasshall area of the school. Younger participants received a medal for their efforts and a few nice prizes in the raffle made it a very pleasant way to spend an hour or two on a Sunday afternoon. We would like to thank the Parents’ Association for all of their hard work in organising this event, those who sponsored prizes for the raffle (listed below) and to everyone who came out to support the event by running, walking or jogging around. All proceeds go to the St Kieran’s College Drama and Music Groups which will be giving performances in the school in conjunction with the Presentation Secondary School at the end of the school year.
