2023 - 2024 Active School Flag Initiative

We were very excited to invite Joan from Meath Athletics back to our school this week. The children have been enjoying learning new skills with Joan all week. We were also very lucky to have Cathal Barron, a TY student, share his GAA knowledge and skills to the children in the school. There has been a fantastic atmosphere in the school with all the extra activity. Despite the mixed weather, the activities still continued.

We had our first Active School committee meeting. The children were very excited to come together. The children will be working hard to keep the school active and busy. They got the whole school to sign a contract that they will keep as active as they can!

New School year - New Active School Committee 2023-2024

We are very excited to start a new school year with a new Active Flag Committee. As the Active Flag Co-ordinator, I am excited to embrace another school year and keep our renewed Active Flag flying high. If you haven't already heard the news, we were awarded our 3rd Active Flag in May 2023. It can be seen flying high at the front of the school. To achieve the Active Flag, a lot of work needs to be done. This flag couldn't have been achieved without the help of the SUPER committee last year. In order to keep the flag, we must keep moving and stay active as much as ever. I am looking forward to having my new committee support me and to help the school remain active throughout the year.

This year's committee is as follows:

Rang Cairde Nua Gorm - Nicholas Paun

Rang Cairde Nua Buí - Olivia Hammond

Junior Infants - Andrei Beliankou

Senior Infants - Kayla Bradley

First Class- Eve Kelly

Second Class - Emma Kelly

Third Class - Rebecca Coleman

Fourth Class - Cian Bohan

Fifth Class - Agostino Marini

Fifth Class - Isla Gillick

Sixth Class - Declan Mackintosh

Sixth Class - Rachel Smyth

Enjoying P.E lessons in our new astro turf pitch

Strand - gymnastics

Children were working on jumping skills. They used the hoops to jump into / over etc. They jumped with one foot/two feet and landed on one foot/two feet. They focused on the skills of how to jump properly. The use of the Pssi Pdst lessons had great activities and games for this lesson.


Integration of Maths and PE

The children went off on a 2D shape hunt recently in Kilbride NS. They couldn't believe how many shapes they could find outside.

Lunch time with the Active Leaders

Hoola hoops and skipping ropes are always the top choice equipment for lunch time activities. The older children and active leaders are always great at assisting the younger children during play time.
