Transition Year 5 students are in the process of organising the very first “De La Salle
College Santa Runway Dash”.
This a 3k fun run/dash which takes place on the Runway at Waterford Airport on
Saturday December 15th at 10am. We are hoping people will come out in Santa
gear or wear anything Festive.
This is a rare opportunity to run along our local Runway and all proceeds raised will
help support The Make a Wish Foundation.
The students have created pages on social media, search DLS Santa Runway Dash
on Facebook and Instagram and follow the link to Eventbrite to register. The cost is
€10, registrations will also be accepted on the morning of the event. Registrations
will be taken from 8:30am. There will be prizes for the best dressed.

Congratulations to our senior debaters, who defeated Presentation Kilkenny on Thursday 15th November. De La Salle College opposed the motion ‘Nike should be applauded for standing with Colin Kaepernick’
