ASPIRE held a pie and puds bake off for Sport Relief yesterday.

Pupils were invited to make a sweet or savoury pie or pudding with a sport-related twist.

We had 18 entries and, as you can see from these photographs, lots of delicious creations.

Mr Murphy and Mrs Pennington carefully considered the taste and presentation of each baked item before deciding on their winners.

Congratulations go to Eleni in Year 7 for winning the savoury category with her sport-inspired steak pie and Delaney in Year 6 for winning the sweet category with her football sponge cake.

€90 was raised from entries alone, with €10s more expected from the sale of the pies and puds.

With everyone’s sweet tooth satisfied, ASPIRE is now preparing for a range of charity events on Friday 21st March.

Students will spend the morning taking part in a three-legged, mile-long walk and attending a special assembly before the school opens its doors to friends and family for an activity afternoon.

Sponge the teacher, sponge the student, a penalty shootout competition, bouncy castle and face painting will be among the attractions.

All money raised on the day will go towards projects that benefit the world's poorest communities.

Since the last Sport Relief, which took place in 2012, an incredible £67.9 million has been spent ensuring disadvantaged people have quality education, access to clean water and are vaccinated against preventable diseases.
