Transition Years complete Yoga module

Transition Years completed a five-week Yoga module this week. The course was directed by local Yoga instructor, Deirdre Desmond and proved to be a very interesting and positive addition to the Activities programme.

Crosshaven U16 Golfers Through to All Irelands’

Date: 11/10/2012

Venue: Macroom Golf Club

Players:

Fionn Murphy

Killian Murphy

Joshua Hogan

Coach: Mr. Fitzgibbon

Coláiste Muire’s opponents for the day were Bantry and Yougal. Fionn Murphy took centre stage, teeing off at 10:39am with a beautiful drive, splitting the fairway. Next to tee off was Joshua Hogan and finally Killian Murphy. All Crosshaven players were playing before 11:00am.

Fionn started brightly, going 5 over thru 9. These 9 holes included 8 fairway finds, 6 greens in regulation and one shot which hit the pin on the 7th hole from 100 metres. He then used his experience to play the back 9 calmly to come in at 8 over par. This was the days best gross.

Joshua Hogan played very well shooting 7 over thru 9. He was driving very well and had a few great putts. He finished 11 over with a great back 9.

Killian Murphy started well but unfortunately was having a hard time finding the green in very windy conditions. He kept battling and never dropped his head but it just wasn’t his day. He finished 22 over par after a few lip outs and a couple of unfortunate bounces.

After much deliberations the lads were told later that night that only the top two scores counted and that they had won the event.

They are now going on to the All Irelands. Well done lads!

Transition Years go Orienteering

12 October 2012

Transition Years took to Murphy’s farm, CIT today where they undertook an orienteering challenge. The students set out with a map, a list of locations and a punch card and went off in pairs to punch twenty two boxes.

First back were Michel Laschet and Michael O’Leary, closely followed by Jack Sheehan and Brian Allen. Amy Wren and Bríd were soon in, taking third place. All three had times around the half hour mark.

The event was organised by Bishopstown Orienteering club. Big thanks to Seán Cotter for his help.

Transition Years sample Thai-Boxing

On Tuesday the 20th of September, Transition year students in the 4A class, were able to experience  Thai-boxing.

During the course on Tuesday, the trainers explained how to do basic moves using safety pads. The students found it very a enjoyable day. We would like to say thank you to Carrigaline Thai-boxing for coming up to our school and doing this with the Transition years for the next twelve weeks.
