Active School Flag

After the great success of the 10 @ 10 on the 10th of February for RTE's Operation Transformation Programme as part of Seachtain na Gaeilge we will continue this initiative for the week as gaeilge during school. In Term 3 after the Easter break we will recommence our morning walk/run for ten minutes before the school bell rings. Last years Road to Rio was a real pupil pleaser and as the Olympics in Rio is now a distant memory we will be canvassing our Active School Committee to create a new name for our morning walk/run. To further increase the use of the Irish language outside of the classroom children will be encouraged to talk while the they walk as gaeilge and certain movement stations will be created where the children will be ag rith, ag damhsa nó ag scipeáil.

Paudie Carey from Clare G.A.A started gaelic football training with 2nd and 3rd class boys and girls this Wednesday. The sessions will largely consist of fundamental movement skills that the children can use across all sports such as running, jumping, catching, throwing and moving in all directions. The children really enjoyed their opening session and are looking forward immensely next Wednesday already. We remind parents that gumshields are now mandatory for playing gaelic football. These can be purchased in any sports shop in town at reasonable prices.

Our Active School Motto: Commit to be fit, stay strong, live long!
