Active School Week 2018
We held our first Active School Week three months after registering for Active School Flag.We had a fun sports day, using all of our new athletics equipment, with a focus on participation and fun (no medals). 2nd Class were treated to a taster swim in our local Meadowbrook DLR swimming pool. 6th Class had a basketball blitz with our neighbouring Our Lady's Boys' National School. The children had PE homework only throughout Active School Week.We hope to build on our Active School Week each year!
Active School Week 2019
During Active Week 2019, all classes in the school had active breaks each day. Each child was given the Physical Activity Chart from Active Schools website, where she could record her levels of activity each day. We designed a special Physical Activity Chart for the Infant classes (shown here) as we felt that it was a little easier for them to understand it. We encouraged everyone to try to be active for 60 minutes each day. Room 7 had a swim in Meadowbrook Swimming Pool and Rooms 6 and 7 had a taster yoga lesson which was taught by yoga expert, Rebecca's mum in Room 7.We had Sports Day during Active School Week too!
