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:

Our fourth, fifth and sixth classes took part in boxercise sessions on the astro turf during active week. They discovered a great new way to keep fit and thoroughly enjoyed these tough sessions.

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.

Active Week got off to a wonderful start last Monday, with a visit to Croke Park. Our boys hurling team from 3rd - 6th class progressed to Croke Park this year. Children from 3rd - 6th class went to Croke Park to show their support for the team. The team played brilliantly! They showed extreme dedication and commitment to the match and to one another. Unfortunately, the boys did not win the match, but they left Croke Park smiling. They were so proud of their achievements, as are we all. Well done to all the staff who have helped with the GAA teams this year and to Derek and Donal for training the boys team.

Our 6th classes had a great time last week during their last Active Week in LETs. They particularly enjoyed the Zumba class that they participated in. Fiona taught the children some Zumba moves and about the origins of Zumba. The children had a brilliant time dancing, laughing, having fun and sharing their dance moves with one another.

To conclude our Active School Week, we had Sports Day on Friday. Sports Day is a great annual event that focuses on participation and fun rather than competing. This child-centred day ensures each child has lots of fun and has an enjoyable day.
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
