The children from Junior Infants to 2nd class are really enjoying having PE equipment to play with at lunch times. The senior classes are also really enjoying table tennis and giant connect 4 and also playing soccer on the grass.

Active Break Challenge - 4th Nov - 3rd Dec (4 weeks)
We are being active for 10 minutes everyday.
All classes in Scoil Mhuire really enjoyed the Active Break Challenge. Every class completed some form of a movement break every day during the 4 weeks. Lots of classes ran daily laps, did dancing and yoga in their classrooms, had exercise breaks and lots more. The children loved it and it is something that we are going to try and do more of as a school :)
GAA with Coach Ciaran
Coach Ciaran is doing GAA with some of the classes. Check out some photos of the classes enjoying PE with him.
Spooky Active Halloween
The whole school did a 10 minute active workout in the yard for our October Active Halloween. We all dressed up in different costumes and did lots of different exercises. Check out some of the photographs.
