|St. Brigid's Active School Flag||
We had a lovely afternoon down in Na Fianna last Thursday. 3rd to 6th class came to watch the football team and teachers play a football match. It was very enjoyable although a little more competitive than envisaged:-)!!! The red team won by a small margin. Thanks to our referees for the day Anna and Emily.Also thanks to Na Fianna for the use of their pitch anytime we need it.
Our first Active School Week was a really great success, full of fun and activity. Pupils, staff and parents in St. Brigid's really embraced it and the wonderful weather helped a lot. Thanks to all the A.S.F committee for doing a super job all week and indeed all the pupils and staff who helped out so much. A huge thank you to the parents who helped with the different activities too. Here are some photographs of our 20 km challenge. More photo's and video to follow soon.
St. Brigid's first Active School Week will take place the week of April 20th - April 24th. We are very excited about it and have lots of things planned. We will be doing circuit training before school, dancing at yard time, doing active homework, having a jersey day, taking part in a 20 km challenge and much more. Ms Edwards is basing all her computer classes on physical activity too. We hope you all enjoy it. Here are some pictures of girls from our committee measuring the hockey pitch in preparation for the 20 km challenge. Some words from our committee:
"We can't wait until next week. I am really looking forward to the Jersey day and the run. It is going to be a busy and fun filled week. We have been working hard to prepare for it but it's all been really fun." Lucie and Ellen
