Caradh O’Donovan Inspires 1st Years
Caradh with a selection of 1st Years
Caradh O’Donovan, kickboxer and winner of 10 National Titles at Junior and Senior level has been working closely with Fingal Community College. She is an athlete mentor with Sky Sports Living for Sport. She promotes the many benefits of sport to young people. She hopes “to inspire students to pursue their goals despite any obstacles that life brings.”
She taught a selection of First Year students all about the six keys to success and about being competitive. She explained that being competitive is a good thing and a bad thing. She taught students some kick boxing. They took part in pair activities and group activities for example human chains and collecting cups to make a castle that had to stand for 2 minutes. Students really enjoyed the experience. It finished with a group photograph and the awarding of Sky Sports bracelets. Many thanks to Mr. Moore for organizing this.
