Our school took part in our first Active Schools Week from April 25th-29th. It was a memorable week for all in the school community. The boys had an opportunity to try out a wide range of activities including hip-hop dancing, badminton, tug-of-war, sprocket rocket cycling, soccer, pitch and putt, tennis, rounders and athletics. We also ran a whole school marathon! Active travel took place each morning. We enjoyed an extra special “Wake Up Wednesday” when the Kilkenny hurlers Joe Lyng, Chris Bolger and our own Mr. Prendergast joined us to “Run a Mile with a Smile”! Our hectic week of activities concluded on Friday 29th with a “Sport for All” Day. The Active School Committee would like to thank parents, coaches and teachers who contributed to a hugely successful and enjoyable week.
Well done to everybody on a very successful snack and browse last Friday. The Parents Council raised 1000 euro for school activities.
