Our active schools committee collected the votes from each class for which type of tournament the children would like to do and the winner was … football. The classes from 1st to 6th participated in a football tournament while the Junior and Senior Infants enjoyed yoga. The staff also got to do a session of yoga for their Croke Park hour this week.

Paula and Colm (5th Class Teachers and PE Committee) took the Junior and Senior Infants for 30 minute slots and did some of the Move Well Move Often activities with them.
