Physical Activity

23rd Jun 2022

We are very proud and honoured to have achieved our new Active School Flag.🇫🇲

This is a Department of Education and Skills initiative that recognises schools that  strive to achieve a physically active and physically educated school community. 

Today we held an Active Flag Ceremony. This involved the Active Flag Committee raising the Active Flag in front of the entire school.  Celebrations included singing, dancing and ice cream.🍦🍦🍦

Some of the classes in the junior end of our school have been busy testing and trialing our new Walkway ahead of active week. It is great to see active learning taking place in a cross curricular way! 

I think it's fair to say that they all look like they are really enjoying it .👌

Over a period of four weeks all classes are participating in a 'Beat your own distance' running challenge. This is a personal challenge which encourages all pupils to improve on their own personal fitness daily. 

The active committee measured 1km around the perimeter of the field and give each class a record sheet to record their distance daily. Each day all pupils aim to improve on the distance they ran from the day before. Each week the active committee check all charts to see who has ran the furthest distance so far!

The kids and staff are really enjoying this challenge!
