On Monday 26th January Dominican College Wicklow began the launch of their Young Achievers program with Sky Sports. The aim of this initiative was to encourage a cohort of students from First and Second year to develop and enhance their leadership skills through cross- curricular activities.
The girls worked with their teachers to develop these skills before a visit from British Olympic Boxer and Sky Sports mentor Hannah Beharry. During Hannah's visit the students were set a challenge in order to demonstrate how each of them had developed their leadership skills and their ability to work within a team to overcome a mountainous task.
While this is a pilot project for the school we hope to develop it in the coming years to enhance our students’ holistic education and help them to become the next generation of leaders both on the sports fields and in everyday life.
