Recently five members of the teaching staff represented the college in the Westmeath's Fittest Company competition in Lilliput Adventure Centre. Under the tutelage of team Captain, Mr Heduan, Ms Brady, Mr Murphy, Mr Jordan and Ms Hayes attacked an adventure course similar to that of the TV show, Ireland's Fittest Family, hoping to do the college pround.
Following a fantastic start by Mr Heduan and Ms Brady in the kayak, Mr Murphy and Mr Jordan maintained the lead on the treacherous sandbag and water tank hills. The team hung on to their lead throughout the bog holes in the forest and the final dash through the reeds in Lough Ennell before emerging victorious as the first placed mixed team in the competition.
A place in the final was the real prize as the four teachers faced seven other companies from across Westmeath, including our neighbours in Mergon. Once again, Mr Heduan and Ms Brady took an early lead but overall the team had to settle for an amazing third place behind last year's winners, Westmeath County Council. Congratualtions however to Ms Brady who earned the accolade, player of the tournament!
Thank you to all the staff who joined the team on the day to give their support!
