The exposition will be held in the canteen and will take the form of a number of displays and demonstrations showcasing how the school promotes healthy eating, diet, physical exercise, civic duty, mindfulness and other elements of student and staff wellbeing. The event will take place from 6.00pm to 9.30pm with the Wellbeing 5K starting at 7.15pm.

The Wellbeing 5K will start and finish in the school grounds and will bring you through the beautiful surroundings of Malahide Castle and gardens. You can register for this event online at
