St Peter’s pupils enjoy perfect prize

Budding young footballers from St Peter’s Primary School enjoyed an action-packed visit to the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park as part of safefood’s partnership with the Irish FA.

Northern Ireland’s top professional football freestyler, Sam Madden, passed on his skills to the Belfast school’s P6 class after teacher Sarah Rooney won a safefood competition.

Apart from a session with Sam, the prize also included a tour of the Education and Heritage Centre at the National Football Stadium and a signed Northern Ireland jersey.

safefood, as the Irish FA’s official healthy and safe eating partner, aims to encourage more kids to make healthy food choices and be active through its football-based ‘On the Ball – Healthy Know How for Active Kids’ programme of activities and events.
