The Dare to Believe Olympic Schools Programme

The kids were very excited to meet Gráinne Walsh today. Gráinne, a boxer and European Bronze Medallist from Offaly, is one of the ambassadors of The Dare to Believe Olympic Schools Programme. This programme aims to promote the benefits and wider values of sport to children by some of Ireland’s best known and most accomplished athletes. The children engaged in a variety of fun and interactive activities based on the following five themes or ‘rings’:
– Olympism and Paralympism,
– Healthy Mind and Body,
– Joy of Effort and Courage,
– Respect, Responsibility and Equality and
– Striving for Excellence.
Gráinne told the children all about her journey in sport and what it takes and what it’s like to be a high-performance athlete.
