Blitz for Juniors and Seniors
A huge thank you to Donoughmore G.A.A. for organising a blitz for Junior and Senior Infants. The children were delighted to meet children from Firmount N.S. and they enjoyed the different activities organised. A thoroughly enjoyable morning and the children were delighted with their certificates.
Sport's Day was an enjoyable day. Children in all classes took part in various activities such as sack race, three legged race and potato and spoon race.
Jogging for June
The active flag committee have organised a running initiative. Each class gets an opportunity to go out to the school yard and pupils are encouraged to jog around it as many times as they can in ten minutes. We are doing this for a number of weeks and we hope to see an increase in the childrens' fitness levels. A great idea from the active flag committee.
City Sports Success
A great day was had by all competitors at CIT , it was a bonus to do so well. 3 pupils reached the county qualifers. Our under 13 boys scorched to victory.the under 11s came an impressive third and we had many winners in the sprints. Thanks so much Mrs O Hanlon for all your help at the training session
We have been busy thinking of ways to brighten our school yard. All the children are delighted and amazed at the beautiful artwork completed by parents who volunteered over the break to design and paint fantastic murals around the school.
Pupils from 1st class took part in Be Active after school. This ran for three weeks and was a great success. The children enjoyed trying out a variety of activities.
Cycle Right Programme
5th and 6th class pupils took part in the Cycle Right Programme. It is a fun six week course that teaches you the correct way to cycle. There was a big focus on safety when riding a bike. The children learnt about junctions, traffic lights, road signs and the bike check.
This year we were lucky enough to get 6 weeks of coaching from Munster Rugby. These classes were great fun and the children were really active. The coach kindly gifted the school with rugby balls and cones at the end of the sessions.
Camogie with Esther
Girls in classes 1st - 4th were taught camogie skills by Esther. They learned lots of new skills and played some matches during training lessons. Thanks Esther.
Easter Egg Hunt
On the day of the Easter holidays pupils took part in an easter egg hunt. Eggs were hidden and the children had great fun trying to find the eggs. A huge thanks to the parent council for organising this.
Active week was a thoroughly enjoyable week. It was also wellness week. There was a wide range of activities in each class. Each class got to participate in a zumba class with coach Danny. We all went on a whole school walk where we walked for a while with a smile. There were maths trails, science and nature walks and much much more. Each class also had active and wellness homework for the week.
The whole school have thoroughly enjoyed their gymnastics classes over the past few weeks.
6th Class attended non-competitive Basketball games organised by Corks Sports Partnership on Thursday 7th. Thank you to Mrs O'Hanlon who trained the teams
