postheadericon Tour of the school garden

The boys in third class gave their parents a tour of our school garden. The boys have shown a great interest in the garden and with the help of Dan, were able to tell their parents lots of interesting information about the vegetables and fruit growing in the garden. The parents were really impressed with all the work that has been going on in the garden and it was great to see such a good turnout!

Have a look at some of the activities, initiatives and events we have put in place to promote physical activity.

W.O.W

In January 2016 Walk on Wednesday’s main aim was to involve parents and the wider community in a whole school initiative.

School year 2016 and 2017 we decided to turn Walk on Wednesday in to a buddy system, partnering the younger classes with the older classes. They boys are enjoying exercising as a whole school very social, fun and caring atmosphere.

10 @ 10

The committee leaders moved 10@10 from the classroom to the outdoors so the whole school could exercise together. Early start to 6th class enjoyed this event immensely and are eager to make it a regular experience.

 

Skipathon

During Active School Week 2016, the boys took part in a Skipathon to raise important funds for Down Syndrome Ireland. Well done to all the boys!
