Malachy’s Girls sensory room
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.
