Active School Day

Our First Active school day in St. Dymphna’s was an enormous success  and the pupils from St Joseph’s Special school  and St Anthony’s School were invited along   to take part . Bike races, obstacle courses, singing and dancing as well as rugby and  football training were just some of the activities on offer. The  sun was shining and the ice cream van  was a big hit with staff and pupils  at the end of the day. 

 Thanks to former Mayo player David Clarke who  put the students through their paces and  who faced more than a few penalty takers! 

Thanks to Denise Murphy, Connaught Development Officer and Coach Developer of Triathlon Ireland and Simon Walsh, Cycling Ireland, Cycle Right Instructor . We appreciate the support of our   local Garda  Michael  and Pat O Brien who has been a wonderful supporter of the school for many years .

Special thanks to our Deputy Fionnuala Comer and Sharon and Olivia the class SNA’s who  planned and organised the day.
