Slievenamon Walk

On a beautiful summer’s day, 5th and 6th class pupils hiked up Slievenamon yesterday as part of Active Schools Week.  It was a tough climb in the warm weather so they were glad to reach the top!

Congratulations to Blathnaid in Senior Infants who came second in her Kool School Gymnastics Club competition.

Active Schools Week Update

Active Schools Week is underway in the school at the moment.

Yesterday pupils from infants went on a trail around the school answering questions with the help of 5th and 6th class pupils.  They found out who has the longest car in the car park [Jane] and discovered some minibeasts under stones.

First and Second Class had their first relaxation time of the week and imagined themselves on lovely beaches or in paddling pools after school.  No sad or bad thoughts allowed.

Today 5th and 6th are hiking up Slievenamon.  Tomorrow pupils from 3rd to 6th are doing pottery.

The Soccer League will kick off at lunch times and all pupils will do Bizzy Breaks, a Sports Profile and Relaxation across the week.
