Two Ballyfermot primary schools – St. Michael’s National School and St. Raphael’s – along with Scoil Mhuire in Clondalkin, will be amongst the first this year to host the popular children’s fitness initiative ‘Fit Squad’ when it returns for a new season this February. Aimed at encouraging an active and healthy lifestyle, topics covered during each visit will include demonstrations of exercises young people should do, advice on healthy eating, and tips on how to use leisure time to stay physically fit.

Delivered by Irish fitness expert Tom Dalton and supported by Fyffes, schools and sports clubs interested in receiving a similar visit can find details online at
