Active Schools Flag - Active at Home

Our school is closed during this pandemic, but that doesn’t mean we stop being active.

A weekly PE plan is sent out to all the girls with suggestions of how to stay active with their families.

So far we have had:

  • Jumping challenges
  • Activities with balls, beanbags and skipping ropes
  • Obstacle courses
  • Circuit training
  • Yoga
  • “Roll the dice and exercise”
  • “Name workout”
  • “Exercise Bingo”

Of course we also keep up practicing skills for all the sports we normally play outside school, like GAA, camogie, soccer, hockey, gymnastics, dance, tennis, dance, taekwondo, and a lot more. There are a lot of family walks and cycles happening, hours and hours are being spent on trampolines and the online PE classes are very popular.

Normally we have our Active School Week in May which was re-named Active HOME Week this year. See some Active Charts below.

Have a look at what is going on in our homes!!
