How fast can you run in the mud??? Apparently not very fast. The TYs had their first trip to Extreme Adventures in Letterkenny. Put through their paces on the obtacle courses followed by a mud run proved a sticky situation for some. Loads of fun, laughs and teamwork helped to contribute to a fantastic day. Well Done to all the students and of course the teachers and SNAs.

The Pramerica Spirit of Community Awards is sponsored by Pramerica Systems Ireland Limited, a Prudential Financial Inc. (PFI) company, in partnership with the National Association of Principals & Deputy Principals (NAPD) and the General Teaching Council for Northern Ireland (GTCNI). The programme is supported by notable organisations such as Volunteer Now, Volunteer Ireland Foroige and Scouting Ireland.
This Pramerica Spirit of Community Awards programme was launched on an all-Ireland basis in 2006. Since then the programme has honoured more than 2000 outstanding volunteers from over 300 schools across Ireland. It has elicited praise from educators, parents, elected officials and news media for communicating to young people the importance of volunteer service in their communities.  Among the prominent personalities who have participated in the programme are Bertie Ahern, John Hume, Caitriona Ruane, Mickey Harte, Declan Kidney, John Lonergan, David Coleman, Martin O’Neill, Brent Pope and Niall Breslin (Bressie).
