Active School Week 2022

Active School Week 2022 took place from Tuesday 3rd May until Friday 6th May. This is a very important part of working towards renewing the Active School Flag and both the children and staff look forward to this week every year. (Staff and pupils particularly like being able to wear PE clothes every day!)

Unfortunately, we were unsuccessful in getting any local sports clubs to provide a taster session, but we still had lots of fun and games all week.

We took a break from written homework and replaced it with a selection of physical activities/ challenges which they completed with their families.

Over the course of the week every class went out and used the new walkway route to promote physical activity as part of their SESE and Maths lessons.

On Tuesday we tried out a new activity, Human Foosball. Everybody had so much fun and really enjoyed playing it.

On Wednesday we decided to make use of some our local amenities. The junior classes went to the playground beside Clondalkin Leisure Centre and the Senior classes went to the playground in Corkagh Park. A wonderful time was had by all.

On Thursday we organised a Pupils vs Staff event. We had a ‘Shoot a Hoop’ competition in the hall. Every class and member of staff was involved. Hannah, Ava, Jatin and Joshua were the winners from each classroom. Hannah was the overall winner. Unfortunately, the staff were not as good as the pupils on this occasion.

On Friday the whole school took part in active stations. There were 4 different stations set up and every pupil got to spend some time at each station. We had hurdles, parachute games, hotseat and penalty shots.
