DLSPCCRO | | Leinster Rugby
When we embarked on Active School Flag, we contacted Leinster Rugby, as we wanted to be part of their excellent schools programme. We participated in 2018 and 2019 and will continue to do so in the future.
We are delighted to continue our long-standing partnership with the GAA which teaches our children Gaelic and camogie skills year after year.
Dublin Primary Schools Mini-Basketball
We intend to continue our partnership with Dublin Primary Schools Mini-Basketball whose philosophy of sport is in keeping with ours. The focus is on maximum participation, enjoyment and inclusion. We're in!
We intend to continue our partnership with 'Cycling Safety' , a company that teaches ten cycling safety lessons in our school each year. We ensure that each class avails of this valuable learning experience during their time in Our Lady's.
Dún -Laoghaire Rathdown Sports Partnership
In February 2019, we had our first meeting with Shane McArdle, Sports Coordinator with Dún Laoghaire Rathdown. Shane gave us lots of great advice and it is great to know that he and all of the team in Sports Partnership will be supporting us throughout the Active School process and beyond. At our first meeting we learned of the 'Daily Mile' event in Marlay Park on May 9th 2019. We will definitely be there!
Our Lady's now in Partnership with the F.A.I.!
Our new partnership with the F.A.I. came about as a result of a suggestion in our Suggestions Box. Some children suggested that we start a soccer team in our school and long story, but here we are! Maggie, an F.A.I. Development Officer will teach 5th Class the skills of soccer over 6 sessions this year. She will return and teach a further 6 sessions at the end of 2019 and will coach our new soccer team, who will be entered in the South Dublin League in early 2020!
