We really enjoy sports here in St. Francis Xavier Senior School…..

We have numerous teams competing in various sports, including Boys and Girls GAA, Boys and Girls Soccer, Boys and Girls Basketball, Cross Country,  Sprinting Events, and Climbing.

We also take part in  the Marathon Kids programme, SARI football against Racism and Bike Week Events. The dedication, teamwork, and sportsmanship shown by students has truly been commendable, and all students represent our school with great pride.

We would also like to express our gratitude to the parents who generously volunteer their time to support our teams and give lifts. Your involvement and assistance is invaluable. Thanks to all teachers who take teams.
