Active Committee Meeting - 16/03/18

On Friday 16th of March the elected members of our Active Committee gathered Donal's room for their monthly meeting. There was much on the agenda to be discussed so no time was wasted. The first order of business for the committee was to confirm an active slogan for the school. many great suggestions were made by the groups last week so Shauna put the three most popular ones to vote. Following the vote it was decided that "Don't sit if you want to be fit" would be the school's active slogan.

April Cross Country Races

Race Report by Aoife & Aisling from 6th Class

It was a lovely, sunny beautiful spring day.

The sun was out and so were the schools.

Everyone was warming up and the 3rd classes were getting ready for their race.

We had lots of good races from the 3rd classes, a few 1st and 2nd places.

LETS Marathon Relay

The LETS Marathon Relay will be taking place next Wednesday 25th of April on out Astroturf. All the children, from Junior Infants to Sixth Class (and even some teachers and parents!), will be taking part and running a section of the relay. By the end of the day we will have ran a grand total of 42.2km as a team. Children are asked to donate €2 to take part in this event. The Active Flag Committee will be meeting to decide what new piece of PE equipment to buy with the funds raised. We are looking forward to seeing everyone participating and having fun on the day!

Today we ran our first Mile Challenge for the school year 2017/18. There were amazing performances all round with over 150 children from 3rd-6th class taking part. Every participant got a coloure coded wrist band at the finish line. All the hard work and training in the park since September has paid off as everyone thoroughly enjoyed the challenge.
