Both third classes were invited down to St. Mary's secondary school today for a fun filled 2 hours of activity. The transition year students organised and ran the event in the hockey pitch helped by Ms. Boran. The girls played parachute games, did hockey drills, danced and really had a wonderful time. We are very grateful to the girls in St. Marys for inviting us down and helping us to get active. See the slideshow below for photographs and click on the 'Be Active' link to bring you to a short video clip. Well done 3rd class.
We've been tying our Active Schools work into Seachtain na Gaeilge. Last week all our songs for 'Drop Everything and Dance' were 'as Gaeilge'. Bhí gach duine ag damhsa sa seomra ranga agus amach sa chlós. On Monday pupils and staff were dressed in 'éadaí glas' and all classes took part in a parade around the school with our favourite tunes playing. It was a lot of fun. Thanks to Ms. Ryan for organising it and to everyone who took part.
Our Parent's Association pedal powered cinema event was a fantastic success. It took place last Sunday and everyone had a great time. Tickets sold out, they were almost oversubscribed with cyclists and the kids really enjoyed the movie as well as watching their parents and teachers cycling. Thanks to all our volunteer cyclists for their time and sponsorship and also to those who attended the event or bought wattage to support it. A huge thank you must go to Susan Nolan and all the Parents Association for the huge amount of effort they put in raise money for the school. They've also really helped us with our active flag work by undertaking this venture. Click on the picture to see pictures from the day on the PA blog.
Ms O Donoghue's and Ms Miley's classes have been taking part in some cosmic yoga lessons recently. They are really enjoying it and learning lots of yoga through fun videos. It is active, relaxing and a nice break from work. It's a great idea and some other classes might try it out too.
If you want to try some Cosmic Yoga have a look at this video and follow the instructions.
This week (9th-13th March) was national Scoot to School Week. This is important for both our Green Flag and Active Flag work. Everyone made a big effort to scoot or cycle to school during week. Ms Keogh recorded the results from each class. We definitely saw progress over the course of the week. Well done everyone and thank you to Room 9 for all their work on this. Winning class will be revealed in a few days.
