Active Week 2019 – Active Home Week 2020

 

What a successful week we had and so much fun!

Well done to all the children for their participation and to the parents also for the help and participation.

From yoga to Jiving to Netball, there was something for everybody.

Our new activity this year was the Jiving with Sandra Ganly, which went down a treat. We also had our community Walk a mile with a smile and thankfully the sun stayed out for us.

Active Home Week 2020

This week would have been our Active school week (and is also National Active schools week) and while we as a staff are gutted not to  be celebrating with you all, we know that what we are doing, staying apart, is much more of a priority right now…and you are all having heaps of fun and activity at home too!

We look forward to doing the activities we had planned for this week another time. Activities such as Tug o war competitions with Tug of war Ireland, visit to Kilcommon gym with workout, rowing with the rowing club, aerobics with Barbara and of course parent netball game amongst many more.

However, there is no reason we cannot all stay fit and healthy and sweat it out in our own nests to mark this special week and share our photos with each other.

For Active Home Week, we ask everyone to complete 4 activities a day which will culminate in at least 60.mins a day exercise. So this can be anything from a game of soccer, frisbee, hula hooping, joe wicks workout, cosmic yoga, toys in a box tidy up races (love that one for the end of the day), walking, dancing..the list is endless. See  picture below  for more ideas.

We would love to share your great effort and engagement on our blog so please don’t be shy in sending in those pics.

If you would like to complete a grid such as one below, we can email you one if you wish and you can return at end of week. (Or you can draw up your own..no pressure)

Keep up the fantastic effort at home. You are amazing!

 

Well done to everyone for the phenomenal effort you made during your very first (and hopefully last) Active Home Week. We are all blown away by the variety of activities you managed to squeeze in and to be honest we are all a little bit jealous we were not doing them too! You are as fit as fiddles and great little advertisements for staying fit and having fun!

Take a look at the photos and see how many friends you recognise!!

Keep up the great effort .

A healthy heart and body = A healthy Mind

Below is a poem that Erin wrote about Active home Week. Fantastic Erin! We miss school too!

Here are some additional photos from AHW. What a fabulous place we live. Farm work , the bog, bouncing castles,  construction ,  cycling,  country  walks and beach walks! Beautiful!
