This week is active week in our school. We are encouraging all children to wear tracksuits to school this week. As well as this we encouraging children to walk to school, take a family cycle to the park and be as active as possible. Enjoy exercise, its great fun and so good for us.
Our school tour with 4th and 5th class was a brilliant day in the Crystal Maze in Co Meath. I couldn't help but notice how happy the children were when they got back to nature, simply splashing and having fun in a little stream. This was definitely the highlight of the day for the children. It was both shallow and safe which is obviously the most important aspect. And the teachers didn't escape from receiving a splashing either! Great fun was had by all and often the greatest playgrounds are what nature provides.
