The Spar Primary 5s is open to boys and girls from 4th, 5th and 6th class, the emphasis is firmly placed on fun, inclusivity and fostering a passion for physical activity. In 2019, a record 1,696 schools and 37,448 children took to pitches around the country to be involved in this great initiative. Winning schools progress from regional level to county, then provincial finals, with a lucky 24 schools making it all the way to the National Finals, which is held on the hallowed turf of the Aviva Stadium.
St. Michael’s N.S. are competitive participants every year in the Spar Primary 5s. Both boys’ and girls’ teams always have a blast while giving it their all! Back in 2016 the boys’ team qualified for the National final in the Aviva Stadium. Two packed buses of pupils travelled to the Aviva to support the boys and, though they didn’t win, a great day was had by all. Hopefully it won’t be long until we’re back!!
