😊😊Raising of our 3rd Active Flag & Mayo Day 2021🎉✨📗📕🍦
We had a lovely day today to mark our 3rd Active Flag award combined with marking Mayo Day. To start the day, we all gathered outside and recapped on some of the activities that we have completed over the 3 year cycle. These can be viewed by clicking on our Active flag page (in yellow) to the right here. Together we sang our Active code and then Lucy and Freddie, who are graduating this year ,were invited to raise the flag to a big cheer. We are very proud of all of the children for their enthusiasm , leadership and for making this initiative so much fun. We look forward to continuing being Active in Inver NS and it won’t be long until we celebrate our Active week towards the end of June.
Upon our return to the classroom, the children got to watch a special video message from none other than our local sporting hero Chris Barrett.(Ex Mayo GAA star). Chris congratulated the boys and girls on their wonderful achievement and reminded the children that keeping fit is not just about playing football. It can be any sport and variety is best.
The children enjoyed decorating their Mayo crests and got to participate in extra activities such as penalties on the múinteoirs , fundamental movement skills development and rounders.
Unfortunately the weather did not hold up for our outdoor disco but we will certainly make up for this in time.
The surprise of the day was the arrival of the ice-cream van at the front door of the school. We all enjoyed our lovely treat!!
Thank you to all the parents for your support and encouragement throughout the past few years and once again well done to the children of Inver N.S!
