SCHOOL VISITS REACH OUT TO OVER 900 CHILDREN

Over the last two months St Patrickís Athletic in partnership with their local dairy company Glanbia have visited 12 schools in the surrounding area and have promoted a message of healthy eating to over 900 students.

The value of dairy products as part of a balanced and healthy diet as well as an active lifestyle is promoted in the classroom with the added help of the Pats players.

It is the involvement of the player that makes the school visits a bit special.

When a message is being endorsed by someone the school children look up to then that helps make a far stronger impact.

St Patrickís Athletic Football Club was chosen as one of five league clubs to pilot this project as part of an overall initiative between the FAI and the National Dairy Council.

Schools visited by players to date include:

Inchicore National School - Dave Partridge
Our Lady of Lourdes, Inchicore - Lance Frieze
Jame's Street CBS, Jamesís - Dave Partridge
Our Lady of the Wayside, Bluebell - John Murphy
Scoil Treasa, Donore Avenue - Stephen Fitzpatrick
