Parents wishing to enrol their child in Ballyneale NS for September 2020 should post the completed Enrolment Form to the school. Please mark the envelope ‘FAO Sandra’. We would appreciate if all forms could be returned by Thursday April 30th.
Laya Healthcare are offering a live health homework lesson so that everyone at home can get involved and stay active in body and in mind!
There will be everything from Yoga breathing exercises and mindfulness to games, cardio movements and lots more. Healthy snacks will be discussed so kids will know all the best ways to get their dose of healthy nutrition regularly!
‘Active SCHOOL Week’ takes place annually and is a really enjoyable part of the school year for many children. This year, because of Covid-19 it is not possible for this to go ahead so we are inviting the families of Ballyneale NS to participate in the ‘Active HOME Week’ challenge instead.
The main aim of Active Week is to raise awareness about the fact that children need at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
To complete the challenge, children have to find four different ways of being active every day making sure that this adds up to 60 MINUTES, or more. Children are encouraged to try something NEW, have FUN with a family activity and to ENJOY the week!
A diary grid should be kept and emailed to email@example.com at the end of the week detailing all of the activities that you did. It is important that we get as many of these returned as possible. These will be used as to show we completed Active Home Week when submitting our application to renew the flag. The grid can be filled out on a computer and laptop.
To be in with a chance to win a Chromebook and an Amazon voucher worth €100, all you need to do is write a 250-word story, telling family and friends of an adventure – your favourie holiday or journey. This story can be real or fictional and must be submitted in the form of a postcard.
The winning stories will be published nationally, in Cara, the Aer Lingus inflight magazine and on the Aer Lingus website. This amazing competition is aimed primarily at 5th and 6th class students.
The closing date for entries is the 31st May and the winner will be announced before the end of July.
Entries are accepted by post to: Aer Lingus Schools Travel Writers Competition c/o The CX Collection, 14 Main Street, Lismore, Co. Waterford P51 C5P9
