A.S.W. – Wednesday – Table Tennis Coaching

Today our fifth classes were lucky enough to receive some expert table tennis coaching. Amazingly we didn’t have to look too far for a top class coach with our very own caretaker, Stephen Dunne,  providing the expertise! Stephen has been playing table tennis at an extremely high level for many years and has been passing on his wisdom through club coaching and our after school table tennis club. Have a look at Stephen putting some of our lads through their paces. We may even have unearthed some top class talent!!
