Healthy Living Programme

A Healthy Living Programme organised by Mayo Sports Partnership was hosted by Moyne College on Tuesday 14th February.

The programme targets second year students and comprises a Drugs and Alcohol Awareness Workshop facilitated by Gillian Conway, Western Region Drugs Task Force; Team Building facilitated by Jarlath McHale, Outdoor Educator; Physical Activities led by Deirdre Donnelly MSP and a Mental Health and Physical Activity Workshop presented by TJ Coleman, Psychotherapist.

Through activity and discussion, the students considered their life choices and responsibilities in contributing to a happy, healthy lifestyle now, and into the future. Cora Staunton (Mayo Traveller Support Group) in speaking with the students, outlined her own life choices with regard to sport and stressed the importance remaining active. For their part, the students were unanimous in their view that the day was both fun and informative. Moyne College wishes to acknowledge the role of Ann Ronayne, MSP Sports Development Worker, together with Ballina Sports Network in organising the event; the role of Siobhán Carroll-Webb, Mayo North East LEADER Partnership Company in providing funding; and the support of the staff of Ballina Community Sports Centre on the day.

2nd Year Girls visit Nursing Home

As the build up to Christmas continues, our 2nd Year Girls paid a visit to St. Augustines Nursing Home where the students sang and played music for the residents. The girls have been completing the Friends for Life Programme where one aspect is giving back to the community. It was great to see the residents clapping along, singing and looking so happy. Thanks again to everyone involved.


Moyne College Elect new Student Council

In tandem with the U.S. Presidential Election, Moyne College had its very own election campaign over the last number of weeks when students actively canvassed for votes to be elected as Student Council representatives. Students from each year group had to be nominated for the position by 2 other members from their year group. Once they accepted the nomination Students could then canvass all of their fellow students for their vote. Frantic canvassing took place with some students using their artistic skills to prepare election posters while some used the familiar option of a friendly handshake and quick chat. An official student council election day took place on Wednesday 26th October with all students in each year group democratically casting their vote to elect their representative to the student council. The votes were counted and verified with the results announced. The 10 successful candidates were welcomed to the student council by the school principal. A Student Council is a representative structure for students only, through which they can become involved in the affairs of the school, working in partnership with school management, staff and parents for the benefit of the school and its students. Usually the student council works with a teacher, who is the link person between students and staff and management in the school. It should always work for the benefit of the school and its students. The new Student Council are looking forward already to making the school environment a better place for all stakeholders.
