Scoil Chormaic are working in partnership with others to promote an active school community. In school we have formed an Active School Flag Committee. Patrick Tate (student) and Cheilla McGrath are the designated PE Equipment Monitors.
Scoil Chormaic has forged links with local Sports Clubs including Larkspur Park and Cashel Rugby Club. The school also uses the local swimming pools to facilitate aquatics. This includes Clonmel Swimming Pool, Clonmel Park Hotel, Canon Hayes Centre and Thurles Leisure Centre. The school also makes use of a local fitness gym.
Last year, the school worked with the Tipperary school Partnership which included Cycle Safety and Yoga classes.
Scoil Chormaic uses local natural amenities including Dundrum Woods, Rockwell College lake walk and the Rock of Cashel.
June 2019 – 5K Run/Walk
On sunday 9th June, Scoil Chormaic hosted our first 5K run/walk. We were overwhelmed with the support we received on the day. We were delighted to see so many students, families, friends and members of athletic clubs participate on the day. Tony Fogarty Burke, Michael J Ryan and Gauril Corduneahn placed first, second and third. Linda Grogan, Aine Roche and Karen Coughlan were first, second and third for the ladies. We would also like to extend our thanks to local sportsperson Denis Leamy who helped get the race started. As the 5K was such a huge success with a positive community spirit, we are hoping to make it an annual event. This was an excellent medium through which to forge partnerships with parents, families, local people, local businesses and local sports clubs.
In January, Stephen Quinn visited our school to give a football coaching session. Stephen is the FAI’s South Tipperary Development Officer. The students thoroughly enjoyed the training session.
As part of the Tipperary Sports Partnership, Mr. P. Ryan’s class are benefiting from a six week course of yoga. The instructors name is Kelly-Ann.
