Walk Wednesday Success
Even on a wet and miserable Wednesday the pupils of Kiltealy N.S were out in force to take part in Walk on Wednesday. Pupils from Junior Infants right up to 6th class took part in the walk on Wednesday 31st of May. Our walk began in the Church car park and continued up through the village and onto the school . We had lots of fun on our walk despite the weather. Well done to all our active and brave students! A special thanks to Miss O’Neill who organised our walk.
Here are some Photos of our walk.
Active Week – Day 4 – Dance
Today we focused on the Dance strand. We danced to music using the interactive whiteboard. We danced along to go noodle and just dance for kids! Then we made up dance moves in groups to a certain songs and performed to for other classes. It was great fun! Here are some pictures of the kids in action!

Active Week – Day 5 – Outdoor & Adventure
Today is our last day of Active Week and we focused on Outdoor & Adventure activities. We worked in groups, reading maps and finding different tags around the school. The children showed great team work and communication skills and had lots of fun along the way. Here are some photos or our adventures!
3rd & 4th Class
Our school promotes physical activity in a cross-curricular way throughout Active School Week
Maths trails, nature walks, songs and dance outside etc.
Active Archie’s Adventures
Through our Active Flag we are raising awareness of fitness among children. We will be aiming to explore as many avenues as possible to keep the children fit and active.
Active Archie has arrived in Kiltealty N.S. and has visited the children to say hello. As his name suggests, he likes getting lots of exercise and he really enjoys trying new activities.
We would like to invite boys and girls in the junior classes and their families to bring Active Archie along with them if they are doing some kind of physical activity, or going to a sporting event as either participants or spectators.
Active Archie will help us see all the activities that the children are involved in at home. This may be organised activities or simply bouncing on the trampoline. Active Archie will be having all sorts of exciting adventures in the next few months!
It would be great if the boys and girls could write about what they did with Active Archie and/or draw a picture about their adventure. Hopefully Active Archie will get to do lots of fun activities with the boys and girls and their families.
