Ten girls from the 5th and 6th classes were chosen to participate in the Dublin's Fittest Schools Competition recently which was held in the IT Blanchardstown sports facility. The girls had been selected from their respective classes based on their fitness levels.
On the day of the competition, the girls first listened to a presentation on nutrition, after which they had to answer questions as a team. The day then consisted of a series of games/activities which tested their strength, speed, agility. Lots of fun was had in the Bench Ball games and other cooperative games. Long jump and vertical jump was recorded as well as sprints of 15m in length.
St. Brigid's did extremely well in the squatting section. Two girls, Lana and Molly squatted for 27 minutes in total, while Shaunagh managed 30 minutes! She was definitely queen of the squats!!
Thanks to the parents who helped out with transport on the day. A great day was had by all. Even though we didn't make it to the final, the girls did themselves and their school proud with a wonderful attitude on the day.
