Our Active week ran from the 20th - 24th of April. We had a full active week programme in place. It was a great success!
Every morning there was a "Walking Bus" to school from Swords Manor car park, Bizzy Break, Drop Everything and Dance, a Skip-a-thon and a Hip-hop-a-thon. All the classes had activities outdoors such as races, obstacle courses, skipping and parachute games. Thank you to all the Parents Active Schools Committee who were very helpful.
We were all exhausted everyday and then we had to go home and do our Active homework!!!
Our motto competition was a great success. 115 children in first and second class submitted a motto. Many children designed a logo also.
We had some great entries and it was really difficult to pick a winner.
Finally, we decided upon a motto from Ava Nolan in first class, room 12.
"Exercise is the Key,
Take part and move with me."
In second place was a motto from Cathal Kelly, also from first class, room 12.
"No moaning or groaning,
We're all active in St. Cronans"
We have formed a Parents Active Committee. The Parents Association have been working hard on this and it will be great to have the community involved especially in our Active Week, which will be starting April 20th.
