David Gillick Visit!

We were very lucky here in St.Peter Apostle S.N.S to have a very special visit from David Gillick (former Olympic athlete who represented Ireland at the 2008 Olympics).

David was in the school to launch the Marathon Kids programme which will see our 5th/6th class children complete 26.2 miles over the course of eight weeks. The children will run the final mile at The National Sports campus where David Gillick will join them in completing this wonderful achievement!

Well done to all taking part and remember exercise is good for the mind and body!
