Skibbereen Community School was chosen as one of Rowing Ireland's Pilot Schools in rolling out its new National "Get Rowing Programme". This involves professional rowing coaches basing themselves within the school for a number of months and working with all Year Groups. A number of Concept 2 Rowing Machines are also provided. Thanks to our School's Rowing Coach, Mr. Ritchie Keating for applying and organising this programme. Thanks also to Skibb Rowing Club for their support and a big welcome to our new coaches, local legends Denise and Emily.
