Active School Week
27th - 31st May 2024

Day 2: Tuesday 28th  May

For our second day of Active School Week, we split up and took part in some team games. The entire school was divided into four teams, with each team cheering on their members as they had fun with racing events like the egg and spoon, three legged race and a long running race. There were some tired legs as the senior classes finished running their three laps of the pitch!!

Day 1: Monday 27th  May

To 'kick off' our Active School Week, we had Coach Kyana from Klaas Kickz here to do some soccer skills with us. Each classroom had an hour soccer lesson with Coach Kyana and we had so much fun doing all the different drills and activities!

Active School Week
29th May - 2nd June 2023

Day 1 

Football Skills with Mr McSharry
To begin active week, we had lots of fun developing our football skills. The children were split into groups to complete passing drills, stopping the ball and shooting drills. 

Day 2 

Tennis with  Coach Daire
On Tuesday we had our last session with Coach Daire. Thanks to the PTA, Daire has been working with us every Tuesday for the past 4 weeks. The children have been striking with an implement, serving the ball, developing their forehand and backhand passing and maintaining a rally across the net. 

Day 3

Sponsored Walk
On Wednesday we had our sponsored walk at the GAA pitch. Thanks to Trevor and Owenmore Gaels for the use of the pitch. In the very warm weather, with everyone wearing the high vis jackets, we managed to walk a total of 5 km (10 laps of the pitch). Thank you to everyone who sponsored us. There were some tired feet when we got back to St. Paul's!

Day 4 

Active Stations
On Thursday our 5th and 6th class pupils designed 9 active stations for each classroom to enjoy. In groups, the children had 3 minutes at each station where the senior boys and girls demonstrated the activities. Lots of throwing, catching, kicking, balancing, striking with an implement and jumping skills were practised!  

Sports Day
On Friday we had our Sports Day. The four teams did their very best in every race, with only 7 points between 1st and 4th place.

Well done to everyone for taking part, including our preschool children! Thank you to parents for helping with scores, organising children, refreshments, and being fantastic supporters! Have a look at some of the photographs from the day.
