Next week is National Walk to Schools Week with Wednesday being National Walk on Wednesday.
This is part of the Green School Initiative and we encourage all families to make an extra effort next week to walk part of their journey to school.
We have the perfect facility for Park and Stride and encourage all families to park at the church and walk to the school gate.
For those that live close enough we encourage you to walk the full route to school.
Our Green School Committee will be keeping record of all the pupils in their class that walk all or some of the way to school and there will be a reward for our walking champions at the end of the week.
Hopefully the weather will allow us all to participate.
Active School Week takes place in school from June 6th to June 9th this year. We have lots of fun activities planned for classes this year.
As part of our Active School Week we will host a timed 5km run/walk at 7pm on Tuesday June 6th starting and finishing at the school.
We encourage all pupils and parents to participate in this event. There will be cash prizes on the night for first adult male, first adult female and first child across the finish line. There will also be a number of medals for other children on the night.
Registration will take place on the evening of June 6th at a cost of €5 per adult and €2 per child.
All funds raised will go towards the betterment of resources within our school.
Looking forward to seeing those of you that can make it.
