The pupils at Scoil Mhuire, Coolcotts, got to swap their uniforms for football shorts recently when they enjoyed their annual sponsored walk.

The theme of this year's event was 'Sports and Sports Stars' and pupils were encouraged to dress up as their favourites sports stars or to represent a particular sport through dress or costume. There were plenty of soccer jerseys, running singlets, boxing gloves - and even a wetsuit! With GAA season in full swing, there was also plenty of purple and gold among the costumes.

There was a tremendous turnout along the route with family and friends cheering the boys and girls on.

In total, €6,552 was raised from the event and this will go towards funding the development of a much-needed all-weather playing surface in the school.
