At our Active Assembly we celebrated all the children on our "Well Done Wall". The children who won the Motto Competition and Mini Leagues were presented with trophies from the principal. The Active Committee received new badges in recognition of their hard work.
We finished our assembly, as always, by getting Active!
We all moved to two dances called the "Cha Cha Slide" and the "Sid Shuffle".
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!!!
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.
Seachtain na Gaeilge was a great success. All of the children were active and took part in learning traditional dances such as "The Walls of Limerick" and "Shoe the Donkey". The whole school also took part in a Ceilí.
At the active assembly the teachers Active Committee demonstrated the exercises for our new Active Homework. This was great fun and the whole school agreed to try it out for the month of March. All the children were very enthusiastic and many of the parents have been joining in on the active homework also!
