From once Patrick McCarthy and Darragh O' Hanlon entered the classroom they had the pupils attention.  They had very well organised lessons, were very prepared and very energetic during the classes.  The pupils reacted very well to all four lessons and learned a huge amount about healthy eating, nutrition and the importance of exercise.
