New Year, New Active School Challenge!

This January we decided to incorporate ‘Wake Up, Shake Up’ into our school week. This involves the student’s using a beanbag in a number of exercises to focus on getting our whole body moving, which helps with concentration, hand-eye co-ordination and general alertness. Why not try some at home?

Also, Active Arnie is back visiting the homes of our Junior and Senior Infants. Arnie is a teddy who loves to keep active. The children are asked to include Arnie in an activity on the evening they take him home from school and then to draw a picture or write about what they did together to keep active.

Well Done to every class for their fantastic efforts in skipping their way to the top of some of Europe’s highest mountains, including

  • Carrantoohill, Ireland (1,041 m)
