Hope you and your families are keeping well. As you may be aware several TY students participate in the GAA Future Leaders Programme. This programme enables students to engage in several modules throughout the year. As part of the Programme students are challenged to organize and run both on-field and off-field events for students.
This lockdown, both TY students and I have been coming up with a new initiative that will get both staff and students active and enjoy some time competing with their families.
Beginning next Monday 25th January, we will be hosting ‘BCS Fittest Family’.
This will be a 5-week competition for both staff and students. There will be one challenge a week, with the winner from each week progressing to the final to be crowned ‘BCS Fittest Family’. You will need 3 members of your family to enter, this can be your immediate family or extended family. To enter, email your families name eg ‘Buckley’ and participants to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday 24th January at 9pm using the subject line BCS Fittest Family.
There will be a prize for the overall winner, best family efforts and most creative videos. Challenges will be posted on the school app each week along with an email sent to all staff and students.
If you have any ideas of challenges over the next few weeks, please send us a message, we would love to hear them.
Below I have attached a poster with the relevant information.
Please follow us on Instagram @bcs_gaafutureleaders20 to keep up to date with the challenges.
Thanks in advance and we hope to see several entries over the next few days!
The GAA Future Leaders team.
