Active Schools Week May 7th - 10th 2019

We were delighted to be able to celebtrate this week in our school. The Active Committee helped Mr. Kelleher inform the classes about Active Schools Week on Friday, May 3rd and also helped with the Active School Week notice board. 

Day 1:

We got off to a great start with all classes participating in the "mad marathon"; Despite the inclement weather, all classes managed to do at least one lap of the field or school yard. One lap is equated to 1KM and by the end of the week we hope to have at least one "mad marathon" accumulated. 




We were delighted to welcome Micheál & Niamh, parents of pupils in Senior Infants & 5th class. They did fitness classes with 1st - 3rd class. The pupils had great fun while developing their fitness and particularly their core skills.





3rd class finished their (Very active) first day of Active Schools Week with a stations lesson as part of their Games strand in PE. This was preceded by a warm-up of "Chinese Boxing"!!
