We are thrilled with the new playground equipment in Scoil Mhuire Junior. It is a great way to keep the children active during breaktimes and is also being used for movement breaks throughout the day and even before and after school! The equipment has been a wonderful addition to our school grounds and the children are getting endless enjoyment out of using it.
Members of the Active Flag Committee lead and co-ordinate all physical activities in the school. Its members work hard to make sure all of the children in the school gets lots of varied and structured opportunities for physical education and physical activity. They liaise with outside agencies and organise the annual Active Week. They are also spearheading this year’s application for the ‘Active Flag’. The committee is made up of teachers, pupils and the principal Caitlin O’Connor.
As part of our Seachain na Gaeilge celebrations, all of the classes worked on learning some simple Irish set dances during PE time.
We finished the week with a céilí where the classes came together to dance ‘An Damhsa Mór’.
