TY 5 Sky Sports Challenge
De La Salle College ‘Living for sport challenge
2015’ funded by Sky Sports aims to support schools to
raise standards, achievement and attainment across
all subject areas.
Sky Sports mentor and Former Leinster Rugby
player Shaun Byrne worked with a TY group over the
course of 2 days. It involved the students working
through challenges such as team building activities
using the 6 keys to success one being ‘hunger to
achieve’.
The 6 keys to success are designed to help young
people develop valuable life skills that will help them
in and outside of school now and into the future. It
was an excellent workshop that involved each and
every student. Well done to those involved.
