We had so much fun exploring running and jumping.
Today the boys and girls from junior infants, senior infants, and first-class completed our 4-week walking challenge. At the start of the challenge, we set out to walk to landmarks such as Doneraile Park, Thomond Park, Fota Wildlife Park, Blarney Castle, and Croke Park. Not only did we reach these targets we walked much further…
During lunchtime on Monday and Tuesday, First Class are showing junior and senior infants how to play different playground games. It is a great success and the kids love it.
We were delighted to launch our new “Active Walkway” on March 16th by having our St. Patrick’s Day Parade around the school. We have 15 posters up around the school so the children loved walking to each of them. It was a great day.

For the next few weeks the children will be going for walks and hoping to reach different destinations around the country. 1 lap of the park = 1km. We are hoping to walk to Doneraile Park (17km) Thomond Park (36km) Blarney Castle (48km) Fota Wildlife Park (58km) Croke Park (199km)
For the next 4 weeks on Fridays, the boys and girls will use skipping ropes and hula hoops to get more active. They were a great success today.
