Football Numeracy Program

Cork City FC have completed their ‘The Football Numeracy Program’, visiting us every Thursday for 6 weeks. This programme uses the popularity of football to help develop practical numeracy skills of the students. Mr. Johnston’s and Ms. O’Connor’s took part in the numeracy skills and were joined by Ms. Coughlan’s and Ms. Daly’s classes for football skills.

Each session took place in a ‘double club’ format. The first half was classroom based with the pupils completing Maths activities in Cork City FC themed workbooks. The second 45 minutes was focused on football skills development using the school hall and finished with a very popular football match. On the last day Shane Griffin and John Kavanagh, defenders with Cork City FC, presented everyone with their certificates.

The students all really enjoyed the program and we will miss Chris and Erica’s visit to us each Thursday.
