St Anne’s Primary School Host Fit Squad

St Annes Primary School Tallaght

Fitness and healthy eating should start at a young age. That’s the message pupils at Walkinstown’s Assumption Senior Girls’ National School and Tallaght’s St Anne’s Primary School heard when they recently hosted the popular children’s fitness initiative ‘Fit Squad’. Delivered by Irish fitness expert Sharon Flanagan, and supported by Fyffes, the visits saw over 230 pupils participate in the active workout which included advice on healthy eating, demonstrations of exercises young people should do and tips on how to use leisure time to stay physically fit.

This school year it is expected that some 7,500 pupils nationwide will participate in the interactive fitness sessions, adding to the over-20,000 pupils who have taken part in it since it was first launched in 2018. Schools interested in receiving a similar visit can find details online at
