Active School Week

Our school organises an Active School Week each year, usually in June. It is a well planned action packed programme which is accessible to all.

Our active schools’ committee is involved in planning the activities and we usually incorporate our Sports day into the week.

During Active School Week tracksuits replace uniforms and physical activities replace written homework.

The school organizes a teachers v pupils event .

Local clubs and physical providers give taster sessions.

Active Lines are a daily part of our Active Week. Our Active School Committee led the classes in different exercises when we lined up after each break.

Senior and Junior classes joined up to complete the walkway challenge on the first day of Active School Week. They identified famous Irish Sportstars and the sports they play. The junior children had to guess the sport by looking at the equipment. Great fun was had by all!

Sports Day is the highlight of Active School Week and the highlight of the year! Thanks to all the staff, parents and past pupils for their support and help on the day. The children took part in a wide variety of games and sports such as football, soccer, tag rugby, hockey, tennis, basketball, table tennis, obstacle course, rounders, novely events, parachute and a well deserved ice cream was enjoyed by all on the day! The senior classes took part in a teacher V students basketball shooting challenge and penalty taking challenge which was great fun.

There were plenty of opportunities to explore dance during our Active School Week. We had music at yard time and Rachel from Dance Sing Act gave us a lovely workshop on interpretative dance. All classes learned An Dreoilín and performed it together on the last day to finish off Active Week in style!
