On Friday the 29th September we helped to organise a Pétanque competition for the 2nd and 3rd year French students with Ms. Mc Goldrick. The students were divided up into teams of three. Each team played the other teams in different rounds till the two remaining teams played in the final. The aim of the game is to roll the ball as close to the ‘jack’ (the small ball) as possible. The team who owns the ball closest to the ‘jack’ wins the round and progresses on to the next round while the other team is knocked out. The winners of the first 2nd year group were Shaun, Brendan and Donna. The next 2nd year group winners were David, Therese and Emmet. The 3rd year group winners were Ciara, Stephen and Christopher. We then played a round with all the boys competing and a separate round where all the girls competed to determine the two best players. The winners of the best player round were Stephen and Tori. All the winners were awarded a trophy which was presented by our special guest, county player Clara Mc Laughlin. Ms Mc Goldrick would like to thank the school for sponsoring the trophies and to say well done to every student who took part...it was a great day of pétanque!
