We are holding our 3rd Active Schools Week this year starting on Monday 27th of May.
As part of this week children should wear their school tracksuit in each day that week as each class will have an active lesson every day. They will also get some active homework to complete each night.
There are lots of fun activities planned for the week. These include Rugby, Tai Chi, GAA stations, Soccer, Mini Olympics, Orienteering, Tennis, Boxing and a whole school dance. During this week we will have a “Shake up Wake up” each morning in the Junior yard at 8.50 a.m. to start each day off. Please go straight to the Junior Yard for this activity. Múinteoirí will then bring the classes in from the yard. Please feel free to join in.
On Friday the 31st of May we are going to hold a “40 Minute Fun Run” to celebrate our schools 40th anniversary year. Our senior side pupils will complete the 40 minute fun run in the morning. After this we are inviting any current parents or any past pupils who wish to run to join us at 12.45 for a 40 minute fun run to mark our schools milestone year. If you wish to run with your paistí in the morning run please feel free to do so also.

The IRFU, in conjunction with 67 clubs across the country, are running a programme specifically for girls over May and June called “Give It A Try – Girls’ Rugby Summer Programme”. Rugby is often seen as an all-inclusive sport, where girls of all abilities, shapes and sizes can take to the field together. At their local GIAT venue, girls will learn the skills of rugby in a fun environment, as well as meeting new friends and staying active during the summer. The programme is designed for, and aimed, at girls aged 10 – 14 years old.
