We’re very excited to be welcoming top Irish athlete Caradh O’Donovan to the school on Wednesday 5th February 2020. Caradh is a former World Kickboxing champion as well as being a National Karate Champion with hopes of qualifying for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
Caradh will be leading a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, and will follow-up with an inspiring and motivating talk as well as a question and answer session. The aim of the event is to inspire the pupils to take up sport generally, but just as importantly to encourage them to discover and then pursue their passion in life.
Every child has received a sponsorship form to use in order to help raise money for the event. You can also sponsor your child by following the below link:
As the sponsorship form and online sponsorship page explain, much of the money that is raised will be used to improve physical activity for our school, while also supporting Irish Olympic athletes and Paralympic athletes.
Please ensure that sponsorship forms and money are returned in a sealed envelope to the school office, clearly labelled Sports for Schools within 1 week after the event has taken place.
Please also make sure that your child comes to school on the event day wearing their PE Kits and that they have fun while taking part!
Thank you in anticipation of creating a terrific and memorable event for our school community.
