Jump, Hop, Skip and Play, Scoil Naomh Áine is fit today!
Here in Scoil Naomh Áine we are proud holders of the Active School Flag. This year we are working hard to renew this flag. We pride ourselves on being a very active school and listed below are some of the initiatives and activities we have undertook to keep everyone in our school fit and healthy:
Run Around Ireland Challenge:
We completed our walk around Ireland as part of our Step into Spring initiative. In total the whole school collectively completed 7,524km.
Games promotion officer James Flynn visits our school every Tuesday to work on the various fundamental movement skills with all classes. We love all the games and activities James does with us. PHilip Connors took over from James and has continued to work with each classes improving their GAA skills.
Pupils in 5th and 6th class are taking part in the Marathon Kids programme. Our children will learn more about the health benefits of sport and perform running sessions each week inching them closer to completing their first marathon as well as learning about the benefits of physical activity. They will complete a full marathon of 42.2 km. This term we are looking forward to our Active Schools week which will take place this June and will include our very much anticipated Sports Day.
