Active School Flag
We were so excited to be awarded our first Active school flag in June 2023.
Our Active School Committee
Our Active School Committee is made up of two boys from each class.
We have monthly meetings to discuss upcoming events and initiatives.
The boys work very hard to keep everyone in the school fit and active in different, fun and exciting ways!

What club are you in?
Our 6th class pupils on the Active School Committee conducted a ‘What Club Are You In?’ survey to find out about physical activity opportunities in the local community. They used a block chart to graph the information!
A lovely article in the Dalkey Newsletter about our work towards our first Active School Flag written by Aran who is on the Active School Committee!
Physical Education| Gymnastics
In 2022/23 we focused on the strand of Gymnastics in PE. Every class has been learning different balances, rolls and sequences. Every class has made great progress!
Primary Aquatics Water Safety (PAWS) Programme
Every class has taken part in the Land PAWS water safety programme this year. They have learned all about the importance of safety around water. This has been very beneficial for our swimming lessons in Castlepark this year!
WALK ON WEDNESDAYS
Marathon Kids Ireland
Fifth and Sixth Class took part in the 'Marathon Kids' Challenge. They ran a marathon over eight weeks in school! To celebrate their last kilometre the boys ran around Cuala! Second class and our Active School committee members joined them to support their final stint!
Run Around Ireland Challenge
Rang a 2, 3 & 4 have been taking part in the Run Around Ireland Challenge. They have clocked up a lot of kilometers running laps of the yard!
Active Lines and Yard Games
Our Playground Leaders thought of excellent exercises to keep the whole school active in their lines after break time!
Our Playground Leaders have also been doing a great job of creating different games for the boys to play during break time such as penalty shoot out, hot-seat, skipping, hula hoop games and new types of tag!
We love using GoNoodle, 10@10, laps and our Active Walkway for brain breaks throughout our busy school days!
We really enjoyed planning our Active Walkway. It has been very effective. Each class uses it for movement breaks, orienteering, naming different flags and using it to name famous athletes during Active Week.
Active Week 2023
The Playground Leaders set up an excellent obstacle course for the whole school to complete during Active Schools Week!
Active Fun Day in Cuala
We had a fantastic active fun day in Cuala during Active School Week! The boys completed lots of different team games, archery, tug of war, bean bag throw, tag rugby, limbo, orienteering and then finished off the day with Slip and Slide!
Staff versus 6th Class Basketball Match
There was great excitement for our Staff vs 6th class basketball match!
