Our Active School Slogan 2022

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!

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!

Active Walkway

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.
