Sport in St. John's
St. John's has a very proud tradition in the Gaelic games. Annually the school enters teams in the mini-7's, 3 amigos, gaelic football and indoor hurling and compete against other schools in the Sligo area. Our teams have been very successful in recent years. The school's gaelic football team have been County Champions many times, and have also been victorious in the Murray Cup.
Most recently the school became indoor hurling and soccer champions.
There are many other sports which take place including swimming, basketball, soccer and golf. The school boasts 2 outdoor pitches, a hall and an outdoor astro-turf which help enormously as we strive for success on and off the pitch. Our sports day is enjoyed every year with many and varied activities - participation and fun are key!!!!
