Active Schools – Partnerships

Active Slogan Competition

We worked together as a school to find and agree an Active School slogan.

We had a school wide slogan/poster competition during school closure. There were amazing entries from all classes and age groups. Have a look at some of the fantastic entries in the video.

Active School Committee

Our school has established an ASF committee.

‘What Clubs are you in?’ survey

Senior pupils conducted a ‘What clubs are you in?’ survey to find out about the physical activity opportunities in the local community. 

Clubs and Organisations

We partner with clubs and organisations in the local community providing activities, training and coaching in our school.

The GAA

Most classes participate in a term of Gaelic training during the year. Classes are given tuition in basic Gaelic skills and work on their kicking, passing, shooting and defending skills through games and activities. Other classes learn some basic Camogie skills.

Tennis Coaching

Some classes have the opportunity to play tennis during the school year and it is a most enjoyable experience for everyone. They learn ball handling skills and striking skills.

Fyffes Fit Squad

A visit from the ‘Fyffes Fit Squad‘ who showed us lots of exercises we can do without equipment.

Marathonkids

Fifth and Sixty Classes take part in ‘Marathonkids‘, an 8 week running programme where they run a full marathon. That means we run 26.2 miles! During this time we also learn about the physical, mental, social and community benefits of exercise. In the past the finale saw the students running their last mile and completing the marathon on the running track in Santry with lots of other schools. This year we ran our final mile in the Bogies. All participants receive a t-shirt and medal to commemorate their achievement.

Active Achievements Board

We have a board with sporting achievements to acknowledge the sporting efforts and achievements of everyone in the school.
