That’s a wrap for Active Schools Week 2024. The children from Junior Infants all the way up to 6th class had a week full of exercise, fun and games. Each year group got to try a number of sports and activities, from tag rugby to field hockey. Some classes (teachers included) were put through their paces by Ms Harkin and her Tabata Workout. Each sport and event was organised by our Active school committee and faciliated by our very skilled teachers.

Each class sampled at least two new sports but as well as this they had an opportunity to pair up with their buddy class to play games and exercise together. There were some great games of dodgeball and rounders played throghout the week. In the junior end, we welcomed lots of parents who got stuck in to playing some games with their children. This brilliant program is called Ag Súgradh le Chéile. On Friday, different class groupings came together to compete in some relay races on the pitch in the lovely sunshine. Everyone put a great effort all week and made it one to remember.
