Active School Week 2016-2017

This school year there was lots to do! We made sure all the teachers had a copy of our PE plan, cleaned up our PE press and organised resources. We worked during our lunch times helping the infants play games. This is something we all enjoyed.

In February we held our ten at ten. This was an initiative by operation transformation. All the classes were dancing at ten o’ clock on the 10th of February. We also went swimming for ten weeks at the beginning of the year! Each Wednesday we walked to Huntington Castle. And we took part in a 6km walk carrying 6kg. This showed us how hard children in other counties work- carrying water back to their homes.

Throughout the year we received active homework and took part in movement breaks. We were fortunate enough to receive a lot of training and classes during the year- basketball, yoga and GAA. There was after school training in both football and basketball. There was also training in camogie/ hurling, football and soccer! We participated in leagues within this- working as part of a team and building up our skills. Kildavin and Clonegal Schools joined up for a very successful football camp in the Ben Mulhall pitch in May. It was great fun learning new skills from football coaches as well as meeting up with our GAA friends.

Active School Activities
Our Active School Week took place at the end of June 2017. On 30 May 2017, we had an extra Fun Day with Kildavin NS in the Ben Mulhall Memorial Park. Local GAA coaches came and held a blitz.

  • Monday 19 June we had our annual sports day. Activities ranged from races, basketball, unihoc, wellie throwing, penalty shootouts to going on a bouncing castle. Parents took part in a parent’s race. Parents were invited to school - the Mammy and Daddy races are always very popular with the children.
  • On Tuesday 20 June, we ended off on tour. We had such a lovely day and the sun shone down on us all. Activities varied from orienteering, soccer matches, kayaking to milking cows!
  • On Wednesday 21 June, Dom Ryan from Kildavin came to school and we took part in boxing! We used gloves practices jabs and punches. Some of us even learned how to do a burpee. The bouncing castle was here again and each class went out and played on it!
  • Thursday 22 June, we had yoga with Catherine and we cleaned up our school Garden. We also took part in drop everything and dance.
  • On Friday 23 June, our basketball league was held as well as the teacher verses student match!
