Active School Week

Active Schools Week - Friday

Friday, the last day of Active Schools Week, saw the entire school go on a collective walk.


What was estimated to be 5 kilometres in distance was covered by all classes from Junior Infants to 6th class.


On what was a relatively warm day, the classes left the school at 11.20, went up through the Meadows, down by Wood Lane, through the heart of the village to the back GAA pitch and then back to the school via Wood Lane.


All enjoyed the walk and the break from the usual academic subjects. Well done all on the walk and well done all on the successful week!




Active Schools Week - Thursday

Thursday in Active Schools Week saw the visit of Paul Fagan, inter county hurler to the school.

Paul, goalkeeper on the Meath senior hurling panel visited all classes from 1st to 6th and spoke to them about the importance of being active and about eating the right foods, particularly on match days.
