Everyone is enjoying Active Week this week! The classes are participating in so many activities - Tag Rugby, tennis, Tae Kwando, badminton, basketball, GAA, Dancing, Skipping, Yoga, Cricket, Pilates, Dodgeball, Ultimate Frisbee among others! Parents and Grandparents have also taken part in our Wake Up Shake Up dances on Monday & Friday as well as teaching the girls some playground games. On Wednesday, each class participated in an Active Picnic - (no food involved!) - instead of food there was a wide variety of activities in the yard including tug-o-war, an obstacle course, welly boot throwing, hoops and lots more! 

Teachers, parents and pupils will all be very tired at the end of this week after being so active! Well done to everyone for getting involved!

 Active Week 2017

Our girls took on the teachers in two very exciting Dodgeballs games today! Our teachers were victorious in the first game but the students were very strong in the second game and got a well deserved win! The Skipathon final also took place.

Our Junior and Senior infants classes had so much fun today taking part in an Active Easter Egg Hunt! HERCULES, our active school mascot, even joined in on the fun! The girls brought in their own bunnies from home to join the hunt too. The children had to find their teddies and then look for lots of chocolate eggs hidden around the school grounds. Afterwards the girls danced and sang some songs in the yard! HERCULES and the girls were so tired after the hunt from all the hopping and running around!
