The Student Council decided as part of our Active Week Fun Day they would like to play a game of Dodgeball against the teachers. Both sides clearly had put in prior training because on the day there were plenty of accurate shots and definite team strategies. Each class level bravely lined up with the students vastly outnumbering the teachers! There were no clear winners on the day. However, so much fun was had by everyone, we may have to include a students Vs teacher event in all our future active weeks.

Active week was launched with yet another successful Walk in the Park on June 9th. The whole school went to Willsbrook Park and walked various distances depending on their class level. The children collected sponsorship money and have raised in excess of €2,700 to go towards upgraging our astro turf pitches. A great day was had by all and luckily we got a nice clear, dry day for our walk. The children were surprised to be treated to ice pops to cool down when they got back to school. Thanks to all parents, guardians and friends who helped out and walked with us on the day.

Junior and Senior infants and First and Second classes had a special P.E. class during Active School Week. Dance teachers from 'Fit Kids Dance' came to teach the children some dances. The children had an amazing time learning some dance steps to their favourite songs. The children even had the opportunity to share some of their own dance moves. All children thoroughly enjoyed this and it brought them lots of laughter and fun.

We had a range of activities this year for Sports Day. Each class participated in the following events:
1) sports stations ranging from target throwing to trampolining,
2) outdoor team games such as football, basketball, tennis and croquet,
3) playground and parachute time and
