Active week

Active Week


We held our first Active Week in St. Johns NS this year. Everyone loved it. All the children and the staff wore tracksuit for the full week, 23rd-27th April 2018. We did something active each day of the week. The children also got active homework for the week. The Active School Committee came up with ideas for Active Week and helped during the week.

On Monday we set up stations in the hall and each class got to take part in basketball, tennis and skipping.

The next day we danced on the hour, every hour. We learned the Cha Cha Slide dance.

On Wednesday, Mrs. Veighey played parachute games with each class.

The highlight of the week was Emer Mc Gowan coming in on Thursday. Each class danced with her in the hall to their favourite tunes.

On Friday we had planned to take every class to the playground in the local park but unfortunately the weather didn’t allow. Instead, the Active School Committee set up an obstacle course in the hall for each class to do.

Everyone loved Active Week. We are already looking forward to Active Week next year!
