Baseline Fitness Report for Primary Schools
In association with Offaly Sports Partnership, pupils at Scoil Bhríde participated in an initiative involving schools from across Offaly in compiling a ‘Baseline Fitness Report’. This involved anonymously collecting data from schools across the county. Many thanks to Eamonn Henry for his involvement in the project
