It is National ‘Active School Week’ this week and we are inviting all students and families to take part in ‘Active Home Week’ through our BCS PE Covid Challenges and Active Home Week ideas. On a week which is usually fun filled and action packed in school with sports day, lunch time games, class challenges & much more, the PE department really want you to get moving, get active and have some fun with the BCS PE Covid Challenges. Don’t forget to log your Physical and Mental health challenges for the week & remember enjoying some physical activity for 60 mins a day is vital to staying fit and healthy.
It’s the first week of the new term and the PE department have been busy creating a brand new BCS PE Covid Challenge for students! Remember to log your Physical and Mental health challenges for the week – continue tracking your progress and most importantly take care of yourself both physically and mentally!
Michaela Casey and Gregor Stasko were the very fortunate participants in the UCC Prep for Med Day on Friday 31st of January. In the morning, students visited UCC’s state-of-the-art FLAME Anatomy Laboratory and learned Clinical Skills, such as CPR, first-hand from UCC’s lecturers and medical students. In the afternoon they visited CUH during which time they received talks from various Consultants and Surgeons, one being State Pathologist Dr. Margaret Bolster. However, the highlight of the day for both students was to observe a baby girl being born by cesarean section! This was a fantastic opportunity for Transition Year students to experience what life as a medical student is really like, well done to the students involved and a huge thanks to the School of Medicine at UCC for hosting such an incredible event.
