On Friday 16th December, Magh Ene College welcomed Sky Sports Mentor Cora Staunton to the school. Cora is a senior county Gaelic player who comes from Mayo.
Cora gave a workshop to this years’ TY Sky Sports students. This is the second year that Magh Ene College has been involved with the Sky Sports project. This year, the project will involve our TY students coaching basketball to our local 6th class students from St Macartans over a number of weeks. The project will culminate in a basketball blitz for the 6th class students organised by the TY students themselves.
Our Sky Sports students’ have also been very fortunate in successfully securing a place among 300 students who will take part in The Katie Taylor Inspirational Day, Tuesday 24th January, at the National Sports Campus in Dublin. The students will meet with Katie Taylor and other high profile Sky Sports mentors to gain experience from listening to their experiences and by participating in activities with them on the day.
Thanks to Ms. McLaughlin for organising this initiative in Magh Ene College.
