We are very active in school. This school year we started off with the Run Around Europe Challenge. On Wednesdays we all take a walk down to Huntington Castle and back. And we even have active homework! We try to think of new physical activities all the time. In a video our Active Committee is saying our active school slogan! This was the slogan that Carla came up with in December!

February 2018
We have been very busy doing lots of extra activities. Our playground leaders have brought the parachute out to the infant yard. They have also played with bean bags and targets. We even had music on the infant yard! Lots of dance moves were on show. Hoola hoops and skipping ropes are now on the senior yard. They are going down like a treat on yard! We are now hoping to introduce music onto the senior yard! We encourage ‘Do your talking as your walking‘, so as everybody is exercising at break time! Our committee made posters highlighting the need for 60 minutes exercise each day. These are now on display around the school! We are now running a competition to see who can create the best poster to promote ‘Do your talking as your walking’. At the beginning of school each day we spend a minute or two raising our heart rates by getting active in our lines! This means we start our day in an active way and our concentration is better in class! Also, our Senior ASD class are busy warming up the pupils each morning before school with jumping jacks and squats as well as running on the spot! Thank you to Mrs. Nolan and her class for doing this! We are now looking forward to our Ceili more for seachtain na gaeilge in a few weeks.

January 2018
Three sixth class volunteers come down to the infant yard at big break on a Mondays and Tuesdays to help the infants play with parachutes, bean bags, hoola hoops and lots more. We took some pictures of our playground leaders. We hope to get playgroup leader bibs in March. We held a competition for an active slogan – we are now learning our slogan. There is a picture of our winner and our slogan. We are lucky enough to have Huntington Castle in our village. We walked there at Halloween and Christmas. Thank you Clare and Alexander for allowing us to visit. During January Operation Transformation is on television. We have decided to do ten minutes exercise at ten o’ clock every day for three weeks. This has been great fun so far. We are introducing hoola hoops up onto the senior yard. Between the different areas such as basketball, skipping and softball all pupils should be active at break time! Remember to do your talking as your walking.
