Nelson McCausland, Dominic Walsh (Sport NI chair) and two hockey players
The project provides the north Belfast school with the latest facilities accredited by the Federation of International Hockey and is one of many projects, across Northern Ireland, to improve our sports infrastructure. Our priorities for sport are about places, participation and performance:
1. Places - the provision of better facilities, or places for sport2. Participation - better facilities will encourage more participation
3. Performance - better facilities will assist our athletes to improve their performance and reach their utmost potential
As a former pupil of the school it was particularly good to open the new facility and I was joined at the opening by the chairman of Sport NI, Dominic Walsh, another former pupil, and headmaster Moore Dickson.
