Active Schools '15/'16

Active School Update May/June 2016

The Active School committee have been very busy planning and organising Active School Week. Active School Week will take place from Monday, 30th of May to Friday, 3rd of June in addition to many activities taking place in the school all year. These activities all promote a healthy and active lifestyle. We hope that the week will be an enjoyable and fun filled week for all our pupils.

We also encourage parents/guardians to get involved in promoting active lifestyles as much as possible at home too. 

Please see below the Active Week timetable and useful websites linked to active school promotion. The Active Week Timetable can also be seen in our School Noticeboard at the entrance to our School.

Keep an eye out for photographs of the activities on this page and the website homepage as the week progresses.
