Working up a sweat!

18th Jun 2018

We had the privilege of having Christine McMahon, a famous Irish hurdler in our school on Tuesday 12th June. This was an excellent warm up day for our Sports Day and encouraged pupils and staff to get active! The day consisted of work out sessions for all age groups followed by a special assembly where Christine shared her story of becoming an athlete and travelling the world representing Ireland.

As well as participating in athletics since the young age of 3, Christine is a trained dentist. She was a pleasure to listen to and really inspired our children to chase their dreams no matter what, which really fits into our school vision to 'Be The Best You Can Be'.

Our pupils have been busy collecting sponsorship for this event. A huge thank you to everyone that sponsored our children as this money will come back to our school and allow us to purchase much needed sports equipment.
