active school flag

We’re delighted to announce that our school has been awarded the ACTIVE SCHOOL FLAG

During the 2014/2015 academic year our school has been in the process of applying for an ACTIVE SCHOOL FLAG. This included a comprehensive review of our Physical Education and Physical Activity Programmes in partnership with students, parents and national agencies. The process was led by our Healthy Eating and Fitness committee comprising of teaching staff, other staff,  parents and students.   All parents were asked to ensure that their children partake in our healthy eating days, Monday to Thursday, and that they would encourage their children to attend all P.E classes.

As part of our Schools Campaign, a boxing event was organised in conjunction with the Sky Sports for Living programme, which took place on the morning of  Friday December 19th before students departed for the Christmas Holidays. Twenty, 5th and 6th year boys and three teachers trained twice a week at lunchtimes under the guidance of trainers from Bunclody Boxing Club. TheBRAWL IN THE HALL was a sell-out and was hugely enjoyed by the whole school community.   A number of events occurred as part of our Active Schools programme including a group of 29 2nd year girls who have have been ZUMBA DANCING. This will continue twice a year at lunchtimes for 6 weeks. The girls are registered with the Sky Sports Living for Sport programme.  The school also entered the Aviva Health Fitness Challenge in January. All our 1st and 2nd years enlisted for this 6 week challenge.  On Friday the 16th of March, the 3rd years took part in a five-a-side SOCCER tournament and DANCE classes in the local soccer pavilion in Bunclody.
