The event, which runs until April next and in which over 500 schools are participating, is the latest phase in a ‘Fit Squad’ schools fitness programme organised by banana distributors Fyffes – initially through a series of school visits and, post-Covid, through a programme of exercises and keep-fit tips presented online by athletes Healy and Gillick.
In recognition of their ‘involvement and inventiveness’ in responding to guidelines set out under the programme, pupils at C.B.S Primary School received ‘fruit-‘n-fitness’ rewards along with bonus points in a league-style competition from which the eventual winners will emerge.
To be announced in May, the overall successful school will receive sports equipment valued at €5,000 plus a visit from Fit Squad ambassadors, Healy and Gillick. Further details can be viewed online at www.fyffesfitsquad.ie
