Active Week – Day 3

WOW (Walk on Wednesday) took place this morning. Children from 1st Class upwards walked from Clann na nGael to school. Junior and Senior Infants walked around the school. Some parents walked to school aswell. Thanks to Orla Smith and Moira O’Brien for preparing all of the fruit for everyone. We also wish to thank Lennon’s Fruit and Vegetables for kindly sponsoring all of the fruit. We really appreciate it.

Evan Conway did Athletics with all of the classes today. He did lovely warm up activities and played fun games with the Infants. They loved playing “Ship to Shore” and “Sharks and Fishes.” They also really enjoyed the relay races. Thanks Evan!

4th, 5th and 6th Class students had their Soccer Blitz in the afternoon. Everyone will sleep well tonight!!!
