Today, we gathered in the school yard to greet the inspirational Áine McDermott.  Áine won a gold medal alongside her teammate, Gemma Steele, in the tenpin bowling doubles event at the recent Special Olympics.

Áine, who hails from Monivea, travelled to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates to compete in last month’s games. She proudly displayed her gold medal to the children and answered some of their questions. We are so proud of Áine and thank her for coming to visit the children in our school.
