Junior Golf Ireland (Primary Schools Golf Programme)
Junior Golf Ireland is offering schools and teachers an opportunity to take part in its Primary Schools Golf programme. This programme aims to give a fun introduction to the game of golf using modified games and activities, suitable to both indoor and outdoor use. It gives access to adapted equipment and resource cards, as well as training for teachers, who may use the programme as a support to the PE curriculum.
Munster Development Officer, Ms. Jennifer Hickey visited the school on Friday 9th October. She will visit again after Christmas to complete phase two of the programme. Phase three will be completed after Easter where the children involved will spend an afternoon at Bandon Golf Club under the guidance of club professional Mr. Paddy O'Boyle.
6th Class has their final training session with Junior Golf Ireland in Bandon Golf Club on Friday the 18th of June.
It was a very successful session and thoroughly enjoyed by all.
