Athletics

athleticsAthletics is part of the PE syllabus and the college likes every student to find their niche at one or more athletic events. Students can choose from sprints, relays, long-distance, hurdles, high jump, long jump, triple jump, javelin, shot-put, hammer, discus, pole vault and walking. In the summer term athletics comes into its own with West Leinster, Leinster and All-Ireland finals held in Tullamore.

In 2013 the college won gold, silver and a bronze medal at these games and there are ambitions to improve on that result next year. Sports day, 18th September 2013, will be a good day for students to show what they are capable of.
