Active School Week
Coming soon to a school near you !
Active School Week (23rd – 27th April, 2018)
The Department of Education and Skills and Healthy Ireland encourage ALL schools to organise an Active School Week (ASW) as part of their annual school calendar.
The ASW initiative is about providing FUN and INCLUSIVE physical activity opportunities for ALL members of the school community. It allows schools to reinforce the message that not only is physical activity good for you but it also very enjoyable. It provides schools with an excellent opportunity to raise awareness about the physical activity opportunities that are available in their locality and to work collaboratively with students, parents and members of the community.
Each day teachers get involved and take part in our vintage yard games. The boys play non-competitive team games such as paired skipping, ring toss, marbles and even dancing !
The boys are loving these games and are even pitching their own ideas for new games each week. A big thanks to all the parents and teachers who helped with the set up of this wonderful project !!!
