We continue to keep up our Physical fitness. We are participating in the Operation Transformation 10 @ 10 and so we try to have ten minutes of a movement break throughout the day. On P.E. days we do lots of activities such as Station teaching, GAA, Irish dancing, basketball and now we are also doing soccer training. Our Active Committee are keeping us fit with our Active Lines, Active Zones and the different activities that they organise throughout the year! Check out the team doing the daily Active Lines.
Run Around Europe Challenge
The school are taking part in the 'Run around Europe' challenge. Each city is a certain amount of KM away and each lap of the school counts for 5KM. The children are encouraged to run as much as five laps a day. We hope to reach many European cities by June!
At break times, our playground leaders arrange our Active Zone in our school yard. On Monday's and Wednesday's, you will see many in our school skipping and on Tuesday's and Thursday's the hola hoop's will be laid by our playground leaders for the children to play with. Check out the photos below!
Keeping active at breaktime
We like to keep active on the yard during our breaks. If we're having a chat, our motto is: "Do your talking as you're walking!" We have a rota for the use of a football and skipping rope each day so all the classes get a turn. The Sixth Class pupils are really helpful and love involving the younger students on the skipping rope!
