As part of Healthy Week at Coláiste Mhuire students received a planner for healthy eating and to track their exercise each day for a whole week. Feedback was most positive with this initiative as students learnt a huge amount about themselves and enjoyed comparing notes with their peers pertaining to diet & lifestyle.
Students were treated to an inspirational talk last week at Coláiste Mhuire delivered by an equally inspirational young man Jamie Harrington. In conjunction with Health Promotion Schools, Active School Flag & Friendship Week, Jamie delivered a talk to respective classes on mental health & wellbeing. Two years ago, Jamie came to national prominence as a 17 year old when a chance encounter led him to save the life of a man in distress on a Dublin bridge.
Our u16 soccer team played their eagerly awaited East Munster quarter final against Mount Sion of Waterford in Peake Villa soccer grounds. Having triumphed as Munster Champions last season, Mount Sion were to prove formidable opposition. As the game progressed however, both sides delivered excellent displays of defensive & attacking football that left the narrowest of margins between them at the final whistle, following a fortuitous goal by Mount Sion. Well done to all involved on a superb performance.
TRIP TO DUBLIN
Our hardworking 1st year students ventured off to Dublin Zoo last week as a treat where they viewed the exotic array of animals from the various planet’s biomes. The excursion finished on a high with a trip to Junction 14 for food & refreshments!
TEMPLE STREET HOSPITAL COLLECTION
Well done to our Transition year students on their cake sale last Thursday that raised funds for Temple Street Hospital. A fine array of delicious cakes, tarts, buns, and refreshments went down a treat as over €300 was collected for a most worthy cause!
