Active Week 2015

We had lots of different activities during our Active Week. The whole school enjoyed taking part. Each day started with our walking club on the pitch.

Our 3km Rith was good fun. Thank you to the parents who helped out on the day to supervise the route.  Congratulations to our winners Eadaoin, Oisin, Jaselle and Jack and to everyone who took part.

We also enjoyed a morning orienteering through Jenkinstown Wood. Again, the whole school took part with teams made up of children from all the classes. It was a new activity for many of the children. We were very lucky with the weather so were able to enjoy a picnic lunch as well!  Well done to the winning team of Matthew, Caoimhe, Eva and William.

Throughout the week the children “took on the teachers” in soccer and hurling penalties…

Ciara from Green Schools visited us to speak to us about bike safety and to encourage us to get out and cycle. She told us how important it is to always wear a helmet when cycling and to make sure that we are visible to motorists by wearing a hi-viz vest, even during the day.
