Second Active School Flag.

We have had a very busy year here in Askea BNS. We have been involved in so many sports and activities. We got to our first Cuman na mBunscol final in 23 years. We entered teams into more sporting events than ever. We made a huge effort to be more active both in and out of the classroom this year. We had out biggest Active School’s Week to date. All classes really enjoyed their action packed school tours. We ended the school year with the very exciting news that we have earned our SECOND Active School Flag. We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped us achieve this. We look forward to seeing you all at our flag raising ceremony in the new school year. Have a great summer and see you all in September for another active year.

Knex Wars!

As part of  the Active School Initiative, we incorporate actives into our mainstream lessons. A typical example of this is Knex Wars. This is where each class uses Knex to create prototype vehicles, which they then test in the school hall. Great fun and an excellent means of getting physical activity into our maths lessons. Well done to all involved.

2017

Welcome back and Happy New Year to you all. We hope everyone had a nice winter break. We look forward to sharing all our ways of keeping active with you in 2017.
