Active School Flag

Touch Rugby

Over the last 6 weeks, 3rd and 4th Class have been playing Touch Rugby on Rosemount Green. The children have been working on their catching, passing and evasion skills as well as improving their communication skills and developing a sense of what it takes to be a good team-mate. 

If any boys or girls would have an interest in joining a rugby team outside of school, there are several brilliant and welcoming clubs in the locality. Details about training in these clubs and contact information can be found below. 

A big thanks to Andrew Egan from Leinster Rugby for all his hard work working with the 3rd and 4th Class children over the past number of weeks!  A special thanks as well to Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council for allowing us the use of the pitches in Rosemount and to Mr. Dooley for allowing us to use the hockey pitch in the Secondary school.

'Active Break Every Day' Challenge Active Flag

The second week of our 'Active Break Every Day' Challenge is coming to an end and it's fantastic to see all the different classes being so active throughout the school day. 

With the weather being dry the yard has been a hive of activity with all different types of outdoor active breaks taking place! 

With two more weeks of our challenge to go we're all very excited to keep ourselves active during our school day.

Kilmacud Crokes in OLG  

Gaelic    

1st Class have enjoyed playing Gaelic football for the last 4 weeks. The boys and girls worked hard at improving their fundamental movements and Gaelic football skills.  The children in Ms. O’Leary and Ms. Hickey’s class were very lucky and got to use the hockey pitch in the Secondary School for their sessions.  

A big thanks to Paraic McDonald from Kilmacud Crokes GAA club for coming in to facilitate the training and to Mr. Dooley for allowing us the use of the Secondary School hockey pitch.

Hurling and Camogie Skills

Over the past four weeks, Senior Infants have been busy working on their hurling and camogie skills in the school yard.

The boys and girls all showed great improvements over the four weeks and really enjoyed being outside and active.  

A big thanks to Niall Corcoran from Kilmacud Crokes GAA Club for all his help!

OLG ACTIVE BREAK EVERY DAY CHALLENGE 

Active

This week we have started our ‘Active Break Every Day’ challenge. Every class in OLG has committed to taking an active break every day for the next four-weeks.  

The idea behind the campaign is to encourage teachers to build short active breaks into their daily school routine to help student concentration and focus.

Every class has been hard at work being active throughout the school day and recording the different types of activity completed on their Active Break record sheet which is displayed on their classroom door.  

This year, we are striving to become a more physically educated and physically active school community. With help from our teachers, students, parents and wider community we hope that in 2021 our school will be recognised as an official ‘Active School’.

*****************************************************

The Active School Flag is a Department of Education and Skills initiative which recognises schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community, by awarding them with an Active School Flag (ASF).
