Each year all TY's and LCVP students from St. Wolstan's participate in the annual Ian Daly Swim a Mile With a Smile challenge. The annual event was set up by Laura and Brian Daly after the death of their son, Ian in 2003. Ian died of a rare form of cancer and all funds raised from the event go towards Our Lady's hospital, Crumlin and Barretstown Camps.
On the 19th of April we travel to The National Aquatics Center to take part in the event. In total the TYs and LCVP students clocked up a total of 24 miles. Most of the miles counted were completed in times of 4 or 5 people, there was also some people who completed the full mile themselves including Ruth Kelliher, Ciara Foran, Roisin Nolan, Ciara Hodson, Katie Sheehan, Aoibhinn Daly, Chanice Corcoran and Abbie Keegan and myself.
Afterwards we had enough time to go to Blanchardstown shopping center for Mc Donalds and a quick shop! Everyone really enjoyed the day out and wished we could go swimming more often for PE! :)
