This week we have had Lee James in giving skipping workshops to all children from junior infants to sixth class. He was amazed at the standard of the skipping of all of the children. Skipping is a fantastic way of keeping fit and develops pupils: agility, balance and coordination. Later in the afternoon the pupils will put on a show for parents in the hall.
