‘Dare to Believe’ Olympic Ambassador Visit

We were very fortunate to have an Irish Olympian in the school on Friday. Thank you to Ellen Walshe, Olympic swimmer, who gave an inspiring talk to our TY classes today.

Our TYs completed the “Dare to Believe” Olympic Values Programme during their Sports Plus programme this year.
Ellen gave a fabulous talk, taking us through her journey from childhood swimming competitions all the way to Tokyo 2020. Our TY Sports Committee ended the session with an engaging Q&A.



Many thanks to Sinead McGrath, founder of evolveducation. for providing our TY students with very informative Relationship and Sexuality Workshops this week. It is always a pleasure to have Sinead in the school and as usual, the feedback from students was extremely positive.

The team displayed excellent football skills  and determination from the whole team, with a special mention for Caoimhe Devane who had a hat trick. A special mention must go to Isabelle Cummins Richardson who stepped up for the team to make her first appearance in goal and she put in a Player of the Match display.




Well done to our junior basketball team who competed in their All-Ireland matches in Athenry, Co. Galway on Wednesday.
