A Visit from an Olympian!

On Thursday 30th of May we had a very special visitor to our school. Thanks to Miss O’Connor who entered our school into a national competition to win a visit from an Irish Olympic athlete as part of the Dare to Believe programme. Having been chosen as one of the schools to receive a visit, Olympic athlete Phil Healy came to our school. The children made Olympic torches, Irish flags, medals and posters to welcome Phil to the school. It was a colourful event. Phil spoke to the pupils and teachers about life as an Olympian, what it takes to be a high class athlete and her own journey so far. Everyone found the visit very interesting and inspirational. We wished Phil all the best for her future travels to Paris for the Olympic games this summer.
