SPAR FAI Primary School 5s Programme

The programme involved 23,736 students last year with 1,267 schools participating. The competition has been running since the mid 1990s and the programme promises to be bigger and better than ever in 2017.

FAI Schools are delighted to announce that the National Finals will be hosted in the spectacular surrounds of the Aviva Stadium again this year. It could be your School in the National Finals on May 31, so sign up in January 2017 for your chance to go all the way and create a day to remember for your School and its students.

This magnificent competition is for kids in 4th, 5th and 6th class and it all begins at your local county level. The events are a fantastic opportunity for girls and boys to participate in a fun filled one day blitz.  There are six sections to cater for all school sizes so whether your school falls into the small, medium or large category there is a competition to cater for you.
