On Friday 13th December, we had our third Active School Flag committee meeting. We have picked our slogan: Jump, Run, Dance, Play; Get Active Every Day!   Well done to Kate in 5th class for coming up with this slogan. The entries from each class had been displayed on the Active School Flag noticeboard over three weeks. We gave one week to each room grouping. It was very difficult to choose from the final four, so we have shown them all above. We also discussed setting up a school league when we come back in January.

We emailed Seamus Nugent at Kilkenny Recreational & Sports Partnership and arranged to borrow the balance bikes. They are a great hit with pupils in the Junior Room that is Jnr infants, Snr Infants and First Class. Learning to ride a bike has never been such fun.

On Monday 25th November ’19 we had our second Active School Flag committee meeting. We have now got all the slogan entries for the Active School Flag. The reps from the Snr Room indicated that we should find the top ten entries, and then find the best slogan from that group. The reps from the Jnr Room told us they would like to play tag and what time is it Mr. Wolf? with the playground leaders. The reps from the middle room indicated that Smelly Sock, Jail, 40/40 and Tails would be popular activities with the playground leaders. All the reps agreed that Active Break is fun. The middle room and Snr room prefer running outside, while the Jnr Room prefers dancing inside.

Cian and Lily will collect the slogans from the Middle room. Luke and Ella will collect the slogans from the Jnr room. Ms Carroll will organise a playground leaders rota for November, and begin the Active School Noticeboard. The members would also tell their classes about playground leaders initiative.
