On the 8th October 2013 Dr Fiona Chambers presented to Institute of Public Health open conference, Dublin, on the topic of All Island All Active: an innovative top-down/ bottom-up approach to increasing physical activity levels. The paper was presented jointly with Dr Deirdre Brennan of University of Ulster.

On the 24th October Dr Paul Conway launched the final report of his Re-imagining Initial Teacher Identity & Learning Study, funded by IRCHSS. Also launched were the conference proceedings of two conferences which formed part of the study, Re-designing Initial Teacher Education: Deepening Engagement with Pedagogy which took place in June 2013 and Trends in Mathematics Education which took place in November 2012.

Best of luck to the 3rd year EYCS students who began their first placement on the 23rd September 2013.  This is the second of two placements that they undertake on the programme.  Each student experiences one early years placement, and has a choice of either primary school or special needs for their second placement.

Congratulations to Louise Ni Mhuircheartaigh, fourth year B. Ed Sports Studies & Physical Education student on winning her 2nd All Star for her performances with Kerry for the past 12 months. Louise also won the award last year.

The autumn meeting of the Irish Theological Association was held at All Hallows College, Dublin, on Saturday October 19. Dr Fiachra Long presented a paper entitled ‘Rhizomatic Belief in Contemporary Society’. This paper is currently under review.

26th Nove 2013: Canadian-born Cork based 2012 London Olympian with Team GB Women’s Basketball team member Rachael Vanderwal and Corca Dhuibhne native Kerry Ladies Football All-Star Louise Ní Mhuircheartaigh lent their support to a recent fundraising initiative organised by final year students of Sports Studies and Physical Education in UCC. The fundraising event witnessed an array of local secondary schools from around the county participate in a Wheelchair Basketball tournament in the Mardyke Arena on Monday November 25th last. The event raised funds for the Irish Wheelchair Association and the local Glen Resource Centre and the experience of participating in such an event proved very popular with the students of the local secondary schools who participated. With 17 schools participating in the morning session and 15 schools participating in the afternoon session the event was very well organised and supported and provided pupils with an excellent opportunity to experience the exhilarating sport of Wheelchair Basketball in a competitive but fun environment. Through cake sales and raffles on the day, as well as sponsorship the event was very enthusiastically supported and much money was raised for two very worthy associations. The students of the Sports Studies degree course at University College Cork are to be commended for their commitment and dedication to organising and staging such an event and providing the opportunity for local secondary school pupils to experience, participate and actively engage with the sport of Wheelchair Basketball. The Markdyke Arena played host to the event and awareness of the event was highlighted through a rigorous media campaign both online and in print. Thanks are also due to the many sponsors who contributed to the event, the schools who participated and to all those who contributed in any way to the successful staging and running of this very successful event.

As part of UCC’s contribution to National Science Week, Dr Declan Kennedy, science education lecturer, School of Education, will be putting on a Chemistry Magic Show on Friday 8 November at 7.30 p.m. in lecture theatre G1 Kane Building, UCC. Admission to the Chemistry Magic Show is by ticket only. Tickets are free and will be distributed on a first-come-first-served basis. This Chemistry Magic Show is a family event, is suitable for children from 10 years and upwards and lasts one hour. Tickets may be requested by sending an e-mail to Mr Brendan Fanning brendanrupertfanning@gmail.com  In the e-mail please specify the number of tickets you require and the date of the Chemistry Magic Show. The tickets will be available for collection by you at the door. All e-mails received will be acknowledged.

A second Chemistry Magic Show will be held in UCC on Friday 15 November for chemistry students from local secondary schools. This Chemistry Magic Show is being advertised through the Irish Science Teachers’ Association

With thanks also to Dr Donnacha O’Connell and Mr Pat O’Connell, Department of Chemistry, for their assistance in preparing and presenting both of the above Chemistry Magic Shows.
