Special Olympians Visit SCN

Special Olympics Report by Ms Murray

On Friday 25th May, we had a fundraising “Wear a Jersey” day. It was for 9 athletes from the Skylark Centre, Athenry who are talking part in the Special Olympics Ireland games which will take place in Dublin from June 14th-17th. They are members of Team Connaught for which I am the Sports Co-ordinator. Some of the athletes came to visit us in school on Friday. They told us what sport they are taking part in, what training they have been doing and what they were looking forward to at the games. They promised to return after the games to tell us of their achievements. We are delighted to say we raised €500 for the athletes!! Go n-éirí an t-ádh libh!!
