It was an occasion of pride and celebration for St Macartan’s College in Monaghan Town when Danielle McKenna from Irish Life Health recently presented the pupils with the awards earned for the accolade of Ireland’s fittest boys school.

The Sem earned the national distinction in the Irish Life Health Schools Fitness Challenge. The awards ceremony was held in Dublin last month. Now in its eighth year, over 200,000 students have participated in the Irish Life Health Schools’ Fitness Challenge, making it the largest national multi-year surveillance study on the fitness of secondary school children in Ireland.

The initiative focuses on preventive and proactive healthcare. It shows that small steps through a six-week fitness programme can make real, impactful changes through increasing fitness levels by an average of 10%.
