Last week was Energy Awareness Week in our school. The next Green-School Flag we are working towards requires us to make greater efforts to conserve energy at school and at home by turning off lights, closing doors, turning off taps, walking to school when we can etc. All classes participated in workshops with Martina Butler from the Heritage Council, school and home energy audits, ‘WOW’ Day, quizzes, poster competitions etc. By the end of the week, it was clear to everybody that we all CAN change our bad habits in to good habits! Well Done everybody and keep up the good work!

Sport for LIFE

3rd Class, 3rd/4th Class, Active School Flag, Miss Travers' Class, Ms. Donohoe's Class, P.E, S.P.H.E, Science  Tagged , , , , , , , No Comments »

Children from Ms. Travers’ 3rd Class and Ms. Donohoe’s 3rd/4th Class have been participating in a Sport for LIFE programme. This programme gives children knowledge of how their body works and how best to take care of it through fun activities. For example we have learned all about the Food Pyramid, how our heart works, our muscle names and locations etc. Today we went to the I.T to meet other schools who also participated and to play some of the activities together again. We even got free t-shirts and a certificate for our school! Teachers can now teach the programme to other classes too!  Thank you to all of the Sport for LIFE facilitators. We have had great fun!
