Last year we ran a jam packed Active School Week from 16th – 20th May 2016.
Our Active School Week included active homework, active clothing, a ‘no console’ week, healthy eating lessons along with water safety and road safety lessons.
Pupils participated in many different sports and activities throughout the week such as Sportshall Athletics in St. Laurence O’Tooles, dance with Aoife from Dowsa Dance School, Zumba with Linda, Swimming, Hurling, Tennis with Carlow Tennis Club, Karate with Carlow Karate Club, Kickboxing demonstration from Larry’s Kickboxing Club, Cricket with Carlow Cricket Club, Indoor Rowing, Basketball, Orienteering, Tug of War and an ‘Old School Sports Day’.
We had a Sports Quiz and pupils and all staff members were encouraged to drop everything and Dance for five minutes every day. ‘Fair Play’ Awards were given to boys who showed great sportsmanship and who encouraged others.
Needless to say both pupils and teachers both thoroughly enjoyed the week.
