A fun-filled day was had by all classes on our first ever GAA Festival in Scoil San Nioclás. All children went to the Parnell's football pitch and engaged in all different football skills and activities. This event was held during our Active Week in school.
5th and 6th Class have finished making their Pooch Pouch and it's finally on sale! They can be purchased in the school for a deal-busting price of €4. Come and get them quickly as there are not too many left! (See 5th and 6th Class for more information)
Be Active After School Activity Programme is a fun programme that encourages physical activity for young children. Be Active is open to all children in 1st and 2nd class. It is runs once a week during the summer term and it is free to take part. The programme is run by a teacher- leader. Parents come to each session and help out. Be Active has been running in our school for two years and the children who take part really enjoy it. Mrs. Duffy is the Be Active teacher-leader in our school.
Active Week 2013 was held in June and the children all had a great week of fun and games. Activities included team relays, Sport’s Day, sponsored walk, Wow day, Walk a mile with a smile and to top it all off we had a fantastic disco in the hall. The boys and girls danced non-stop and had a brilliant time. Thanks to DJ Mark for giving his time and thanks to Johanne Whelan who very kindly supplied icepops for everyone. We look forward to another successful Active week in 2014.
