New Playground

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.

Outdoor and Adventure Development

This year the whole school has been working on developing the ‘Outdoor and Adventure’ strand in PE. We’ve had all sorts of fun orienteering lessons as well as outdoor activities on our school walkway, lessons involving walking and outdoor running challenges. We’ve especially worked on linking PE with other subjects to provide lots of active learning opportunities in subjects such as maths, geography, history and science. We even had a few Easter Egg Hunts! It’s been a real team effort from all the teaching staff and the Active Committee with new resources and ideas and it’s been hugely involved by all.
