Take on the Teachers Challenge

St. Brigid’s School, Killarney held a Teachers vs. Students competition on Tuesday, October 23rd. The TYs organized the day and each class had a representative competing in the events against the teachers.

Over the previous weeks in PE class, students had been tested in the areas of burpees, bench jumps, the plank, hula hooping and skipping. Whoever did best in those areas had the honour of representing their class on the day. 

All students and staff undertook a warm up which consisted of a dance routine. It was then time for the competition. The representatives from each class went to their station and waited to go and were joined by the competing teachers. There were a range of challenges to test fitness and endurance namely, skipping, bench jumps, hang ups, the plank, hula hooping and many more.

The highlight of the day was the sixth years vs teachers’ relay. There were three sixth year teams and one teacher team. The tension was palpable as the teams lined up. A speedy relay ensued and the sixth years were outright winners much to the delight of the student cohort! It was a great afternoon and everyone enjoyed participating in an event and cheering on the competitors.
