Our Energy Rap created by 5th & 6th Class Pupils

Energy Rap

We’ve got one flag, We want one more,

Lets get to work, its not a big chore.

Lets try to stop wasting energy,

By using less electricity.

We need to decrease our usage in light,

Our classroom doesn’t need to be so bright.

TAYTO is our motto-not the Crisp,

Turn All Your Things Off-there’s a good tip!!

Last Out Lights Off-LOLO’s what we say,

We chant this as we’re going out to play

Shut the door!

We’ll say no more!! (mic drop)

An Active School meeting was held on 13/02/17.It was confirmed that the 10@10 was a great success and it will be done again in the coming weeks.

The Active School Committee shared ideas on Active Lines,Active Breaks and Active School Tours.Active Homework was discussed.The “Drop Everything And Dance” initiative is to begin in all classes.The committee reminded us to keep an eye on the active notice board for details on the school run.Children will aim to run from Malin Head to Mizen Head,between now and the end of the school year.

Well done to all the boys and girls who participated in the 10@10 this morning.

Primary schools all over the country got up and moving this morning as part of a country wide initiative called 10@10.  The 10@10 is an Operation Transformation initiative to get children to do 10 minutes of exercise at 10 am during the RTÉ One series and to continue the mini-workout into the future.

The popular lifestyle programme is celebrating its tenth year making this morning’s workout, that is happening in primary schools nationwide, all the more special.

The boys and girls in our school were divided into mixed aged groups with children from each class. The children who are on the Active Schools Committee were the leaders of each group. They had to guide the younger children and ensure that their team stayed together and kept moving!!!

We set up six stations with a leader at each station explaining what to do. To begin with we did a short warm up and when the whistle blew, we got started. We spent 1 and 1/2 minutes at each station. Once the whistle blew we moved again! We even had music to add to the fun!

Station 1: Running, side steps, high knees and heel kicks!
