A Donegal school has picked up a major award at the PExpo 2022 Awards.
Gairmscoil Chú Uladh, from An Clochan, Leifear, took the prize for best project in Irish at PExpo ’22 , hosted by Dublin City University on Wednesday last.
Lauren Ní Chearúil, Eirin Ní Bhaoil, Eimear Ní Mhaolmuaidh, Seaghan MacCormaic and Dabhóg Ó Feidh, called their project Tnáitheadh In Lúthcleasaithe or Burnout in Athletes.
A second project from the school called “Ag Tomhais BMI i scoileanna. Docharach nó cuidiúil?” was submitted by Meghan Nic Fhloinn and Chloe Ní Mhuighe.
PExpo, developed in association with the Physical Education Association of Ireland, was first held in 2015 with the aim of developing an understanding of PE, sport, fitness and nutrition among secondary school students.
Projects are judged not only on content but also on presentation and the ability of the students to explain their project and defend their conclusions.
