Sports For Schools and Caragh O’ Donovan came to our school for a a sports fundraiser and circuit training session. We learned so much from Caragh, who is a world kickboxing champion. It was such a great event and a very inspirational day. Check out the video here.
We joined up with the Wicklow Local Sports Partnership in January to start the new year with a bang! We smashed the One Million Step Challenge as recorded on the pedometers that the WLSP kindly let us borrow for the challenge.
