Sports and Wellbeing Day
Sports and Wellbeing Day

Mary Immaculates' students and staff believe that emotional wellbeing is positively associated with participation in sport and recreational activity among its school community. To this end students and staff had a very active day taking part in a variety of activities including: Penalty Shootout, Tug of War, Tag Rugby, Wheelbarrow Race, Basketball shots and Hurling & Camogie shots. There were Senior and Junior teams each exhibiting a healthy competitive edge as points were being awarded depending on the position of the team in each event. Emerging as Senior Sports and Wellbeing victors was team E: Killian Blood, Lucy O’Growney, Cian Howley, Saoirse O’Brien, Katie Thomas, Harry Wainwright, Róisín McNamara and Eve McMahon. Emerging as Junior Sports and Wellbeing victors was also team I: Darren Flaherty, Aisling O’Brien, Oscar Zhou, Maebh Meehan, Sadhbh Blood, Dawid Partyka, Poppy Slevin, Aidan Kelly and Seán Stack.
