SCHOOLS SPORTS PROGRAMME
As a membr of the Irish Special School Sports Council (ISSSC), Mother of Fair Love is proud of its secondary school sports programme which includes Soccer, Basketball, Tabletennis, Rings and Draughts. The school enjoys an inter-school programme which runs throughout the academic year.
Mother of Fair Love School Girls’ Basketball team part annually in a special inter-school All Ireland Basketball Blitz in the National Basketball Arena in Dublin and trains throughout the year in preparation for this event.
Mother of Fair Love School is both the founder of and host school for the annual South East Special Schools Swimming Gala which takes place in Kilkenny every year.
An FAI league for special schools in Leinster called “Football for All” provides students with an opportunity to train with the FAI and also to be invited to trials. On this basis 18 players are identified from the Leinster province overall. These students may get an opportunity to play at an international level on the Irish Special School Soccer Team. A number of our students have been capped for Ireland.
