Last Thursday, 5th of October, was Tree Day. Second class took a trip to Willsbrook Park to participate in a nature walk. We noticed all of the autumn colours and thankfully it was a dry and sunny afternoon. We learned some facts about trees, discussed why trees are important to us, identified the trees in our local environment and collected leaves and other autumn items such as conkers, helicopters and beech nuts. We used the leaves that we collected to identify what tree they belong to.

All children were assigned PE homework this week. The children were delighted to have time off from regular homework and many classes have decided to include PE as a regular homework feature.
Here are some of the options the children could choose from:

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.
