Next week is Active Schools Week from 08-10th May. Our aim is for Scoil San Eoin to receive our Active School Flag early next year. The Active School Flag (ASF) is awarded to schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community.

Our aims for the week and afterwards is to encourage the children to get more active, more often.

As part of this we have arranged lots of activities for the children to take part in.

  • Weds 08th May - Clara Jenkinson will be here to do tug of war and boxercise.

  • Thurs 09th May - The children will be doing dance classes with Laura Gannon where they will be listening to music, dancing and the older pupils will be learning a dance routine.

  • Friday 10th - The children will have their gymnastic classes but we will also have Alison Shanley in to do some GAA with the children.

In preparation for Active Schools week, can all parents please ensure that the children:

  • are wearing comfortable clothing & footwear (If weather is good, children are allowed to wear PLAIN navy shorts (no football shorts or other shorts).

  • Have extra drinks with lunches

  • are wearing sunscreen if weather is warm

Thank You
