Malachy’s Girls sen­sory room

The Argus - - NEWS -

ST Malachy’s Girls Na­tional School will stage their sec­ond 5k run this com­ing Wed­nes­day, with a big crowd of pupils, former pupils, mams and dads, broth­ers and sis­ters to take part.

Last year’s event was very suc­cess­ful and the funds raised were put to good use be­fore the end of the school year with the open­ing of a sen­sory room.

The €10,000 cost of the equip­ment in the room had to come from fundrais­ing and the school’s Par­ents As­so­ci­a­tion played a huge part in mak­ing this a suc­cess.

‘ The sen­sory room is very use­ful for some giv­ing some pupils quiet time out, but it is ac­tu­ally time-tabled for use by all classes’, ex­plained Prin­ci­pal Ms Briege Gal­li­gan.

‘It has been a great ad­di­tion to the school, she added.

This year’s 5k run starts in the Fri­ary Youth Cen­tre and fol­lows the Car­rick Road, Ecco Road and Pearse Park back to the start. Re­fresh­ments will be pro­vided in the Youth Cen­tre af­ter­wards.

‘ The run is chip and timed and is a pop­u­lar run­ning route’, ex­plained Ms Gal­li­gan.

Cost of en­try is €10 and run­ners, jog­gers and walk­ers can en­ter via St Malachy’s Girls face­book page.

All funds raised by the run will go to­wards fur­ther school projects sup­ported by the ac­tive Par­ents As­so­ci­a­tion.
