Wake Up Shake Up

Mr Maguire got our Active School Week off to a great start with our Wake Up Shake Up in the mornings. Students, teachers and parents really enjoyed it. The best way to start the day! Thank you to Fifth Class for teaching us the dance moves.We had great fun learning the dance moves to Saturday Night, The Cha Cha Slide, The Macarena and the Dreoilin.

 

10@10

On Monday morning we reintroduced our outdoor 10 @ 10. Junior Infants, Senior Infants, First and Second Class all took part. It took us a lot longer than ten minutes to get around all of the stations!

The rain came just in time for the 10 @ 10 for the senior girls. No need to panic, we moved everything to the hall and kept going. Nothing will stop these girls from being active!

Photo Star

The teachers have all being working hard putting together some new resources for the Outdoor and Adventure strand of the Physical Education curriculum. Ms. McKeon organised Photo Star for Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Class. Who found the mystery word???

Let’s Swim!

Tom, Assistant Manager from Coolmine Swimming Club spoke to our Second and Third class girls about the importance of learning to swim at a young age. He told them that swimming was one of the most important life skills they would ever learn and how lucky they were in Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní) to have seven weeks of lessons each year . He also encouraged them to go the public swims in Coolmine Pool at the weekends to practice the skills they had  learnt in their lessons.

Olwyn from Tennis Ireland and a number of coaches from Castleknock Tennis Club came to the school on Tuesday 24th April. Every girl in the school attended a taster session with the coaches. Hopefully we might have some new members in Castleknock Tennis Club!

GAA
We were very lucky to have a number of representatives from our local GAA club, St. Brigid’s, in our school during Active School Week. Our GPO, Barry, worked with Junior Infants, Senior Infants and 1st Class. Willie and Mick are both volunteer coaches and they came to the school and did some sessions with the other classes. Mr. Shannahan, our Student Teacher, also helped out. We had lots of fun playing football and camogie.

Skipathon
We love skipping in Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní)! Each afternoon during Active School Week, one class took part in our own skipathon. We are super skippers! Our 6th Class girls even mastered the skill of ‘Double Dutch’ skipping!
Irish Dancing

We are very grateful to the Byrne School of Irish Dancing for taking the time to do some Irish Dancing with Rang a trí!
