Basketball & Healthy Lifestyle Event
‘On Friday, a group of senior girls went to a Basketball and Healthy Lifestyle Event in Blanchardstown I.T. We competed against three other schools in the event. One of our teams had to compete in a 'shoot-off' against Scoil Oilibhéar but unfortunately we lost by one basket! There was a guest speaker from America at the event too who spoke to us about the importance of sport in our lives. Everyone played great and had a wonderful day!'
