This year in St. Mary’s we had a very impressive health week which greatly helped us to become more aware of many different issues about our health and how we can live a healthier life.
On Monday all transition year went to a talk hosted by a nurse from the Marie Keating Foundation. She helped to make us more aware of many types of cancer such as lung and skin cancer. She was very helpful, kindly answering all questions asked.
On Tuesday TY A & B took part in Tae Kwon Do with Ms. Foley. She thought us many different moves and punches such as the axe kick and how to hold your guard. She helped us to find our inner ninja!
On Wednesday all transition year went and watched a basketball match in the Sports Hall. Our basketballers played a very impressive match against the Bower, Athlone. The final score was 54-45 to Athlone.
Also on Wednesday, Zumba was held for all senior students in the Sports Hall. It was a fast and effective way to exercise and was enjoyed by everyone that took part.
