Following a TY training day (10am – 12pm) delivered on school grounds, the TY students will lead Tug of War sessions for 1st year students in PE classes over 6 sessions supervised by a PE teacher. At the end of the 6 sessions an ITOWA Tutor will assess the TY students run a Mini Blitz in the school with the 1st year students they have been working with.

This programme will cost €2 per participant and a School Affiliation of €100.
