The Importance of Supporting Local School Sports

Massive congratulations to the Rathmore boys for a darn near perfect season - we are proud to be able to support them!

We were delighted to see a post on Twitter highlighting an excellent performance for Rathmore Grammar School’s boy’s teams, who we were proud to sponsor for the second year running. A few contacts have asked what value we get from these activities, so it was worth putting a few thoughts on paper to encourage our contemporaries to look into their communities to do the same.

Rathmore girls also having a great year on the field.

As community members, it’s essential to recognise the value of supporting local school sports. By investing our time, energy, and resources into these extra-curricular programs, we help nurture the growth and development of young people:

  1. Fostering personal growth: Participating in sports helps students develop crucial life skills such as teamwork, leadership, communication, and perseverance. I hope that by supporting local school sports, we enable our youth to grow personally and academically.
  2. Encouraging physical activity: In a world where sedentary lifestyles are becoming increasingly common, supporting school sports programs encourages children to stay active and maintain a healthy lifestyle. This benefits their physical health and contributes to their mental well-being.
  3. Building community spirit: Local school sports bring people together. Attending games and cheering on our young athletes, we strengthen the bonds between community members and foster a sense of pride in our schools.

As long as we can, we will continue to support local school sports is not only an investment in our children’s future but also a contribution to our community’s overall health and vibrancy.
