The event was hosted by Frankie Keena and special guest speakers included Aengus O’Rourke, Andrew Haran, Robbie Henshaw and Bower fifth year Carla McManus.

Carla spoke of the important role sport plays in her life (she is an international soccer player) which helped her adopt a healthy lifestyle. She later joined Robbie and guests for a photoshoot.

The Bower won best school for a record number of entries in the photography competition where Laura Pena and Marion Nolan were placed. Noel Casey accepted a painting on behalf of the school.
