Active School Week

< back

Our school organises an Active School Week as part of our annual school calendar. This is one of our favourite weeks of the school year. We wear our tracksuit bottoms for the whole week. Active homework is the only homework we receive. During Active School week we travel to school as actively as possible. For some this means walking the whole way to school and for others this means walking from the graveyard or the church car park.

Active School Week 2017-2018
Our Active School Week takes place from 18 to 22 June. This year we will have even more activities as our Junior and Senior Schools are on separate days. It will begin with our annual Sports Day (weather dependant). Parents are welcome at 1pm. We will start off the day by celebrating our renewed Active School Status by raising the Active School Flag.

During this week we will also be going on our school tour. Ita will run our annual basketball tournament and Dom Ryan will visit and provide a boxing session so we will have the bouncy yet again! We are also hoping to have Zumba! Our annual Sports Day will take place on 18 June.

Here is a look at our Active Week Poster that Roisín Carroll made! As you can see on our Active Board we are involved in lots of activities!

Active School Week 2016-2017
The Active School Week of the 2016-2017 school year 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!
