Active Schools


Every Friday we set up and teach Juniors, Seniors and 1st class, builders and bulldozers, lifesaver tag, ring toss, relay races and lots more. It’s a lot of fun to play with them and to teach them new games. The younger classes are really enjoying this and we can see them getting better from week to week. We hope the weather continues to be good so we can do this every Friday.

Fyffes Challenge


Fyffes are on the hunt to find Ireland’s Fittest School. As part of this challenge, we‘re trying to keep our school active and healthy by doing ‘wake up, shake up’ 3 mornings per week before class starts. Shona leads it on the front yard and Anne and Colm lead it on the back yard. We jog on the spot, stretches, duck walk, jumping jacks, squats, mountain climbs are some of the activities we do on these mornings. Pupils are finding it’s a good way to get going in the morning instead of going straight to class. They find that they are more alert and ready to start the day!
