This month (January 18′) in A5 we are being active for our 10 minutes a day in a very different way! We have being going outside to our yard everyday to do laps of the school yard! 1 lap of the whole yard is 100 metres! We try to do at least 1 kilometre a day! So far we have run 8 kilometres! We try to run in the mornings and we find it really helps our concentration for the rest of the day!

PostHeaderIcon Sports Against Racism Ireland Soccer Workshop December 2017

On Friday last (1/12/17) we had the pleasure of having the S.A.R.I. team in Gardiner Street. They completed a soccer workshop with the 5th and 6th classes in our school!
Rooms 8, EX2, and A6 learned a lot about respect in sport, diversity in sport, and social inclusion through sport!
They played lots of games with these values in mind and learned a lot of new soccer skills!
We really loved having the S.A.R.I. team in with us last week. Thank you to all at S.A.R.I. Check out their website for more information!
