Congratulations to Pippa who won the Mr. Mooney Shield Swimming Competition for 2022. St. Margaret’s N.S. retired principal, Mr. Mooney was delighted to present the coveted shield to her in person. Well done to all the children who participated.
As part of our Active Halloween Feel Good Fridays initiative the children had lots of fun participating in a Halloween scavenger hunt, skeleton relays, exercise circuits and playground games.
The children came up with their own slogans and colourful posters to promote the importance ‘being active’. They came up with so many creative ideas and the overall winner was Zoe Madigan in Third Class who came up with the slogan ‘Put Down Your Switch and Get On The Pitch’.
#FeelGoodFriday WALKWAY Day took place on 25th March. We used this day to launch our new and revised Active School Walkway for the first time. We are using the new walkway route to promote ‘Learning on the Move’ which ties in nicely with the Outdoor and Adventure strand in PE which we are focusing on this year.
