A recent Ladies GAA and Lidl Ireland study found that 50% of our 14 year old girls give up sports, most during their first year at secondary school. To combat that the Coláiste has launched an activities club for first year girls after school every Friday. Attendance up as far as midterm is mandatory and so far the students have tackled games, multi sports and two weeks of dance with former dalta Amy Brennan. We hope that we can 'buck the trend' and keep our daltaí fully involved in sport as lifelong participants. Thank you to the teachers who have given up their free time to support this wonderful initiative!
