Swim for a Mile
On Saturday 25th March 2017 our Principal, Ms. Sheelagh Jones challenged herself to ‘Swim a Mile’ in the National Aquatic Centre.
Sheelagh bravely took on this challenge to raise much needed funds for the costs that will be associated with running our own minibus here at Cheeverstown School. She trained hard to prepare herself for the event (with many early morning starts involved before her long school day even started!).
Sheelagh did herself and all of us proud and swam her mile in just 43 minutes. She was presented with a medal in recognition of her achievement and raised much needed funds for a worthy cause.
On 13th June the students of Cheeverstown School participated in their Sport's Day. As you can see from the pictures lots of fun was had!
