Active Week

Active Week

We held our annual ‘Active Week’ at the beginning of May. It was a huge success! There were several events organised. The whole school was fully engaged in activities throughout the week. Check out some of the events organised below!

Dance Class and Drumming Fitness with Ms Graham

Ms Graham did a super active dance class for our Junior and Senior Infants. She took the older classes for a fantastic 'Drumming Fitness' class. It was a brilliant success and the children loved trying something new!

Park Run, Marley Park

One of the main events of our Active Week was a ‘Park Run’ in Marley Park. The older classes did a 2 kilometre run, while our younger classes ran for 1 kilometre. The walk to and from the park made it a very active day!

Run Around Ireland Challenge

We organised a ‘Run around Ireland Challenge’ for all classes. We used our new Active Walkway as the route to run. Each lap of our walkway is 500 meters. The children ran as many laps as they could each day and kept a tally on the score sheet in the hall.

'Skipathon'

The children were allowed to bring in skipping ropes to use in the yard and at other times throughout the day.
