Causeway students run for fitness and wellbeing

Students and teachers at Causeway Comprehensive celebrated their success in completing a couch-to-5k programme last week after weeks of training.

Kerry football captain Gavin White got proceedings off to a flying start on Wednesday last, November 6, as hundreds of students took to the road in Causeway for the culmination of their training.

Since September, students and teachers at the school have been taking part in the couch-to-5k programme which has made a dramatic improvement to their mental and physical wellbeing.

Organised by the PE (Physical Education) department and the LCVP (Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme) group, the majority of the school’s 500 students took part in the 5k run/walk that has brought the school community together like never before. Fiona Leahy from the PE Department says the turnout was very encouraging.
