  • Mon, Nov 08, 2010 @ 21:12

Sixth class students from Our Lady of Lourdes School in Inchicore recently completed a new community partnership programme called “Give Drugs the Boot” .

The programme, a joint initiative between St Pattrick's Athletic and local community groups, works to raise awareness of the dangers associated with drink, drugs and smoking.

As part of the five-week course, local Airtricty League club St Patricks' Athletic provided soccer coaching sessions for the school group while the education and awareness side of the programme was delivered by the Inchicore Community Drugs Team.

Throughout the course both organisations stressed the importance of young people leading healthy and active lifestyles.

At the course end all students were presented with their certificates of achievement and the programme is expected to be rolled out in more schools in the area over the coming months.

Pictured at the presentation of “Give Drugs the Boot” certificates are, Community Worker from Inchicore Community Drugs Team - Michelle Gallagher, St Pat's Community Coach- Michael Hopkins, student- Megan Agusta, Paddy the Panther, teacher - Lee Kavanagh, student - David Bezin and teacher Anne-Marie Roche.


Please note only a small number of tickets remain for the St Patrick's Athletic Supporters' Club Player of the Year night on €20th November in The Spa Hotel, Lucan.

Tickets are priced at €20 and are on sale at the Saint Superstore on Emmet Road.
