Cora Staunton Visits 6th class

On the 15th December Mayo football star Cora Staunton came to visit our class. We listened and learned about Cora’s early life and her involvement in all sports and activities. We also heard about how important it is to find strength to overcome difficulties and to develop confidence and perseverance.  We engaged in many activities that involved team work and cooperation.

The idea of this activity was to develop teamwork and co-operation.
