At Doon Convent National School, we believe that athletics plays an important role in lives of the children, our school, and our community. Athletics brings pupils together, creates opportunities and has numerous benefits that must not be overlooked. Our athletics training is available for children from 3rd to 6th class and there is great excitement as we engage in distance running in the Doon GAA field, relay racing and sprinting activities.

Since the creation of our Athletic Club we have participated in both the Limerick Primary Schools Cross Country and the County Tipperary Primary Schools Cross Country. We have had great success at these competitions we hope to continue this legacy into the future. There is also a great comradery and sense of togetherness created when we take part in these competitions building deep meaningful connections and essential life skills.
