Accompanied by Mrs Cosgrove and Mrs Haughey, our
GLAMS squad (Girls Leadership and Marketing in Sport)
attended an “Inspiration Day” at Craigavon leisure centre,
which was hosted by Girls Active.
Also pictured is Inline skating World Champion Jenna
Downing who the girls had the privilege of meeting. They
also had the opportunity to listen to her inspirational story
which drove her to success.
The girls were involved in multiple workshops and also
physical activity sessions in dance, boxercise and ultimate
frisbee. The purpose of these workshops are to give these
young ladies the right skills and confidence levels to return to
school and motivate their peers to lead healthy active
lifestyles. The girls will also be working on new initiatives to
increase participation rates in sport and physical activity for
We are really looking forward to the GLAMS squad fresh
ideas for the sporting life of St Mary’s.
