Welcome to Holy Family Boys National School Active School Blog. We are currently in the process of renewing our Active School Flag. We will be using this blog to show our progress throughout the year. Please visit to see all the posts in the four sections; Physical Education, Physical Activity, Partnerships and Active Schools Week. We have a busy year ahead and look forward to sharing it all with you.
Today was National Fitness Day. Ireland Active are running an initiative called Take on the Teachers Challenge. Our school took part with lots of activities. We had a 6th class versus Teachers tug of war challenge. Sixth class won one and the Teachers won one. Class teachers then challenged their class to basketball or penalty shoot out. Great fun was had by all.
Our Gaelic football team have been training very hard after school every week and have been taking part in Cuman na mBunscol competition. We played our last group game today. It was a tough game but we came out on top. They are now through to a semi final. Well done too all the boys and best of luck in the semi final. Here is a picture of our Gaelic football panel.
