IRELAND - Fyffes has once again named Ireland’s Fittest School 2024. County Waterford’s St. Mary’s Touraneena National School has earned the title following its participation in a three-month competition, in which hundreds of schools from all over Ireland took part. The school won the live grand final in which the top four schools in this year’s competition were featured.

“It was really encouraging to see how much fun and enjoyment the young pupils had as they incorporated the exercise routines into their PE classes and undertook each month’s fitness challenge,” said Head of Marketing Emma Hunt-Duffy.

The grand final, which took place in Dublin last week, was hosted by three of Ireland’s best-known athletes—World Para Rowing champion Katie O’Brien and Olympian sprinters Phil Healy and David Gillick—and saw the four schools contest for a prize package which included €8,000 ($8,700 USD) worth of sports equipment.

Supported by Fyffes and tracked online, the purpose of the competition, launched last Autumn and now in its third year, was to promote the importance of exercise, fitness, and healthy eating amongst young people. According to a press release, a central feature of the program was a series of exercise routines which competing schools could adopt as part of their PE curriculum and against which performance could be measured.

Congratulations to St. Mary’s Touraneena National School!
