We are very excited that Yoga is starting at the school on March 7th for four weeks for Junior Infants to Second Class.


Gymnastic lessons recently took place in the Community Hall after school for First and Second Class pupils before the midterm.  Thanks to Miss Whelan and Mr. Brennan for facilitating these lessons. The kids really enjoyed the sessions and thank you to the parents also for arranging pickups at the different times.


As part of our Be Active Programme, we will begin gymnastics for 1st  and 2nd class pupils after school on Wednesdays for the next six weeks. We are very grateful to Miss Sarah Whelan and Mr. Paul Brennan who will conduct these lessons.

However, because of the numbers and to ensure individual attention to pupils, we will need to split the sessions and each class will get three weeks of lessons as follows:

First Class Only – Wednesday 18th January, 25th January and 1st February;

Second Class Only – Wednesday 8th February, 15th February and 22nd February.

Lessons will be held in the Community Hall from 3.10pm to 4.10pm. Children must be collected from the hall at 4.10pm. Pupils will go directly from the school to the hall at 3.00pm under the supervision of Miss Whelan and Mr. Brennan.


Gymnastics is still taking place after school through the Be Active Programme run by Ms. Whelan.  Pupils from 1st and 2nd class take part.




Gymnastics starts this week for pupils in 3rd and 5th class.

Wednesdays 3 – 4 pm for 4 weeks.
