Today was Team Work Thursday! We participated in the ‘Climb the Heights’ Skipping Challenge. We set a target that the whole school worked together on throughout the day to achieve.  We counted how many skips each pupil completed and then we had a look to see how many of Europe’s mountains our school climbed. We managed to climb most of Europe’s mountains even Monte Bianco in Italy (4,810m) and Mont Blanc (4,810m) !! Below are some of the results.

The European Week of Sport aims to promote sport and physical activity across Europe. The week is for everyone, regardless of age, background or fitness level.

 Irish SCHOOLS are asked to promote physical activity in whatever way that they can during European Week of Sport. The focus of the week should be on FUN and INCLUSIVE physical activity.

#BeActive is a great way to kick start the school year.
