As part of working towards our active flag, we are completing a number of different active initiatives. We now have a very eager Active School Committee in place which will be introduced soon. We have been working hard on our Run Around Europe challenge, with the halfway progress reaching 4794km in three weeks. We started our 12 days of Fitmas challenge yesterday, where the children will complete a different exercise each day at 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm and 2pm. If you would like to continue the challenge at home then follow the daily plan above and complete on the hour, every hour. MERRY FITMAS EVERYONE!!!!
Children who participated in the Inter-Schools Swimming Gala and came first in the small schools section.
On Friday, the 10th February, at 10am we took part in RTE Operation Transformation 10@10. The whole school met in the yard and the children were put in teams of 3s and 4s. We took turns in our groups of counting and skipping and at the end of the 10 minutes, we added up our teams scores. Overall we skipped a massive 8579 skips! We are in the process of climbing European mountains by converting our skips to metres. Check out the mountain heights in the link below! We are hoping to complete all the mountains in Europe over the next few weeks during our break times.skipping-challenge
We were very lucky to have Olympian Lizzie Lee visit our school and talk to us about her exciting time in Rio, as well as giving us all tips and hints for succeeding as an athlete. We were very impressed by her dedication and drive.
