Laois Sports Partnership was delighted to hear such positive feedback from Barnashrone NS about the ‘Bubbles and Pods’ equipment which they put to excellent use.

The students and teachers were certainly resourceful in their use of the equipment supplied to them which was used for orienteering , PE and circuits activities.

The equipment proved to be a big hit with students of all ages, from seniors down, and also helped to provide physical activities for students with additional needs.

One of the teachers from the school had some very kind words to say about the sports equipment provided through the scheme.

“The equipment was of fantastic quality and was used during orienteering & PE with the older classes
and also PE & circuits activities with the younger and special needs groups,” the teacher said.

“We really appreciate the amount of equipment we received and the booklet of activities and games
cards was much appreciated,” the Ballinashrone NS teacher added.
