Congratulations to Toni-Marie Ceno, Sophie Kennedy, Fiona Nervez, Dylan Kavanagh and Niamh Carry McLeavey on winning the Components of Fitness Junior category at the this year’s PE Xpo. It was a milestone for the school as it is the first time the school have won a prize at the competition and excellent reward for the hard work the five 2nd year students put into their project.
The PE Xpo event is in its fourth year, had nearly 200 projects entered and took place in Dublin City University (DCU). The project the students presented on was a Personal Exercise Plan to improve their Performance in Football. Each student specifically worked on speed, agility and power through a variety of training methods on a six week period so they could improve their football performance.
The project showed that each student had dedication and resilience to stick with their training programme and collaboration to work as a group to create and present their findings to the judges at the PE Xpo. The skills that the students are developing will be invaluable as they go through school but also when they begin working.
Special mention to Konrad Bzdrya, Eduard Grefaldeo, Joey Yu and Éibhín Flanagan in TY for putting in the hard work to present projects, unfortunately they didn’t win the categories in which they were competing but did themselves proud. Well done to all students and to Ms. Dwane for helping them with the statistical analysis aspect of their project.
