‘Help Others’ Basketball League
This November we ran a “Help Others” Basketball League.
The players paid €1 to enter,and with the funds raised,we bought as much non perishable foods as we could to donate to the local Branch of St Vincent de Paul. The competition was a great success and there was great excitement for the Finals. All the food that was bought was on display during the finals so the girls could see how much can be done with a little effort. Well done to all who took part or contributed.
A Presentation was made to Leaving Cert student Niamh Martin who scored 116 points in the Post Primary Schools League in the last few weeks.
