Future Leaders 1st Year Olympics

Loreto Balbriggan is proud to provide the Future Leaders Programme in Transition Year. The programme is a joint initiative from the GAA and the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST). It is a cross-curricular programme comprising of a series of modules designed to encourage maturity, initiative, responsibility and leadership skills in pupils. The Programme gives pupils the knowledge and skills to support all roles required in the effective staging of Gaelic Games. As part of the Programme students are challenged to organise and run both on-field and off-field events for younger students. On Tuesday, this year’s Future Leadrers organised their first big event with all first years participating in their very own Olympics. All form classes competed against each other in a number of different activities such as hockey games, tug of war, basketball games, quizzes, dance offs, board games and much more.  1J were the eventual winner and each student received a voucher from ‘Storm in a Tea Cup’ Well done to our Future Leaders on organising such a fun event.
