Get Active Week

GET ACTIVE WEEK 2017 is here!

Get Active Week is always one of the highlights of the year, for both the children and teachers.  We strive to create a physically educated and physically active school community.  Regular exercise plays such an important role in maintaining a healthy body and mind.  We want to try and build good exercise habits and create positive attitudes towards and interest in physical activities.

There are lots of the old favourites back on the timetable this year – DP Gym, The Olympics, GAA Blitz, The Euros in Donnycarney, Balbriggan Cricket Club visit, Trip to Malahide Castle, Slieve Gullion Trip and Swimming.

We are also introducing lots of new activities this year – Laser Run, Tug O War, Ultimate Frisbee, Samba Dancing, Pitch n Putt, Nutritional Talks, Flag Football, Bodyweight exercises, Circuits and so many more!

We are so lucky to have so many staff members with interests in various sports…we have uncovered lots of secret talents!  Who knew that we had a karate sensei, Irish team baseball player, majorette, football coach, professional dancer and former gymnast on staff???

We are also delighted to invite in many outside sporting associations and instructors to hold workshops with the children.  This will provide the children (and teachers!) with the opportunity to try many new physical activities and hopefully find a new sporting interest!

Sports Day will take place on Wednesday 14th June at O’Dwyer’s All-Weather ground (beside Bremore Castle) and parents are welcome to attend.  All classes will participate in athletic races and various activities on the All-Weather pitches.  The Junior races (Junior Infants to 2nd Class) will take place between 10:00 and 11:00. The Senior races (3rd Class to 6th Class) will take place between 11:30 and 12:30.

You will find a list of some of the activities that your child’s class has timetabled overleaf.

There is also a Family Quiz attached.  Please return the completed sheet by Friday 16th June to be in with a chance to win a fabulous prize.
