We participated in Active School Week (ASW) at the end of April.
The Department of Education and Skills and Healthy Ireland encourage
ALL schools to organise an Active School Week
as part of their annual school calendar.
"The ASW initiative is about providing FUN and INCLUSIVE
physical activity opportunities for ALL
members of the school community.
It allows schools to reinforce the message that not only is
physical activity good for you
but it also very enjoyable.
It provides schools with an excellent opportunity
to raise awareness about
the physical activity opportunities that are available in their locality
and to work collaboratively with students,
parents and members of the community"
Ms Kelly's class held a wonderful assembly at the end of Active School Week
to show us all the work that
they had done to participate in ASW.
As you will see all of the children (and some of the staff too!)
took part enthusiastically in a whole range of activities.
