At the start of the year an Active School Committee was chosen from a very enthusiastic group of students. Our committee is made up of a student from 6th, 5th, 4th (2 students) 3rd and 2nd class. We have weekly meetings where we discuss our aims and goals for the month and we review what has worked well and what we can improve on. We ran a competition at the start of the year where we picked our school slogan from a huge amount of entries. The winners slogan, and now our slogan for the school is……………………….’Hockey, tennis, swimming and more……..Templebreedy is active to the core!’ Our Active Schools board displays a range of these slogans, as well as tips and ideas of how to get healthy and moving throughout our days.
Today the three primary schools in the village came together to celebrate World Day of Prayer.
All classes have been participating in operation transformation 10@10 for the month of February and are loving it! With the weather being so temperamental lately it has been great that they are getting moving indoors as well as outdoors when possible! Below are children in the junior and senior classrooms enjoying some movement and exercise!

In January the junior and senior infants classroom was transformed into a doctor’s surgery. The children explored the roles of the receptionist, nurse, patient and doctor. The children made their own stethoscopes and x-ray pictures in art. We explored safety strategies for crossing the road and learnt the safe cross code. In Gaeilge we learnt all about Teidí bocht and in Religion the children listened to stories about Jesus healing the sick.
