As you may be aware, we are currently working towards renewing our Active School Flag. The Active School Flag is awarded to schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. As part of this process, we will be continuing with some initiatives along with undertaking some new ones.
Active School Flag Committee
A number of children from 1st to 6th class have been selected to form our committee. Mrs Duffy is Active School Flag co-ordinator.
All classes will receive 2x 30 min PE slots to encourage activity throughout the week.
Active Break times
Children are encouraged to be as active as possible during break times. Break time equipment will be audited and updated over the next few weeks and all children have been given the opportunity to suggest what they would like to play with. Parent suggestions are also welcome.
The Daily Mile
We are working in collaboration with Louth Sports Partnership as one of three pilot schools in Co Louth to roll out The Daily Mile Challenge. The aim of the programme is to increase physical activity in school age children. Every child will participate in 15 minutes walking or running every day for five weeks. Please ensure your child is wearing suitable footwear.
Super Troopers Active Homework
All classes are receiving active homework one night per week. All games and activities are explained in the Super Troopers booklet. This is a great chance for the whole family to get involved in physical activity and have some fun together!
Active Week 2018
Active week will be held from June 5th- 8th. Sports Day will be June 7th (weather permitting) We look forward to another fun filled week of movement and activities! If any parents would like to get involved, please contact Mrs Duffy.
Active School Tour
Our school tour will take place on June 11th. It’s going to be a super day filled with outdoor and adventure activities for all.
