Students took on teachers at Scoil Chríost Rí in Portlaoise in the past month to raise funds to send the school's basketball team to the World Championships in Greece.

A team from the girl's secondary school is fundraising to travel to Crete to represent Ireland at the 2019 International Schools Basketball World Championships.

The star-studded team took on a selection of teachers in the Nano Nagle Hall and photographer Luke Wynne went along to cover the event for the Leinster Express.
