Active School’s Week kicked off on Monday with some special guests to the school. Mícheal Schlingermann, a past pupil of St. Aidan’s who is now goalkeeper for Drogheda United called for a visit with Adam Byrne, a pupil of St.Louis Community School. He is currently playing with Sligo Rovers. Karen Forkan Burke from The Parents Association and Kevin Burke from Kiltimagh Knock United soccer club also attended. These guests took part in our Whole School Wake up, Shake up! and ended the morning with a penalty shoot out with two pupils from each class taking a shot against Mícheal and Adam. Other activities that took place today were basketball and tennis with Mrs. Tierney and a walk with Ms.Lee.
