Today - Friday - was the last day of Active Schools Week and what a way to finish off!! Today saw the final leg of or Active Week 10k. Over half of our students completed the week long challenge as well as partaking in all our other activities. A great number of other people from our school community also completed the challenge including teacher, school staff, parents, family and friends! Well done to everyone who took up the challenge!
Our 6th class students were very fortunate to receive a visit from the Irish Wheelchair Association. Our coach for the day, Robbie, also brought some sports chairs so the boys (and teachers) could experience wheelchair basketball!! All who took part were amazed at the level of skill and fitness needed to play this game and showed that a disability is no barrier in becoming an elite athlete! A hugh thank you to Robbie and the Irish Wheelchair Association for providing us with this fantastic, and enlightening, experience!
We would like to say a huge thank you to all those who contributed to making our very first Active Schools Week a great success! A special thank you goes to Boyne Rovers F.C for allowing us the use of their pitch all week and to all the coaches who gave up their time to help our boys experience some amazing new sports and activities!
Go raibh míle maith agaibh!!
