Active School Week

As well as being active throughout the year, we organise an annual ‘Active School Week’.

The girls participate in many activities throughout the week. The girls begin each day with Wake Up, Shake Up! Look at us doing our squats, lunges, and high knees!

We have many volunteers visit our school during the week to organise a wide variety of activities with the girls. They have great fun trying out new and exciting activities.

Here are some photos of the girls being active at zumba, gymnastics, tennis, cricket, yoga, Irish Dancing, hockey, creative dance, GAA, basketball, karate and our finale penalty shoot out.

The bouncy castle is of course the most popular activity of the week!
