Fyffes Scoil Carmel Junior NS

Fitness and healthy eating should start at a young age. That’s the message pupils at Scoil Carmel Junior National School, Firhouse heard when they recently hosted the popular children’s fitness initiative ‘Fit Squad’. Supported by Fyffes and delivered by Irish fitness expert Sharon Flanagan the visit saw over 100 pupils participate in an active age-appropriate workout designed to improve their general fitness during which advice on the importance of healthy eating was given. Running until March, the current series will see some 10,000 pupils participate from schools throughout Ireland, north and south, increasing to almost 40,000 the number that will have taken part in the programme since it was introduced in 2018.
