Sky Sports Student of the Year Award 

We had a very special day in Ardscoil Mhuire, Ballinasloe, Co. Galway on Wednesday March 25th.

One of our 2nd year students, Stephanie O'Halloran, won the Student of the Year Award from Sky Sports Living for Sport.

Sky Sports had already been in school filming Stephanie and her friends two weeks ago for footage to air at the awards ceremony on Saturday the 28th March.

Sky sent Karen Usher (Lead teacher for the Sky Sports Living for Sport Project), Stephanie, her Mum and her Aunt to London on an all expenses paid trip to the awards.

Sky Sports came to our school again on March 26th (this time in secret) to reveal that Stephanie had won overall Student of the Year for the Republic of Ireland.

Katie Taylor came to present Stephanie with her award during a school table quiz. This was all filmed and aired live on Sky Sports News! As you can imagine it was a very special day for Stephanie and the school.

Stephanie was on television on Sky Sports 1 on Saturday morning 28th March at 9am and again on Sunday evening for the awards show at 7.30pm.
