BALLYBROWN NATIONAL SCHOOL teachers Katie Gibbons and Stephen Hodnett co-ordinated Active School Week on June 15-19. With the support of staff and parents a range of activities were enjoyed throughout the week. Indoors there were colouring, create a motto and design a poster competitions but the emphasis for the week was on active outdoor fun. Monday morning started with a “Wake Up, Shake Up” dance session for the entire school followed by obstacle courses and circuits. Tuesdays activities were orienteering, maths trails and an evening session for parents on healthy foods hosted by Yvonne Deegan. Wednesday was “Walk a Mile with a Smile” Day. All classes and staff participated with great support from parents. Junior Infants, Senior Infants and First class walked to the Breska Rovers soccer pitch while second, third and fourth went to Kilkeedy. The senior classes walked to Carrigogunnel Castle. It was enjoyed by all in spite of the rain. On Thursday the annual School Sports Day was held with novelty races, station games and a Zumba session in the afternoon hosted by Darren Nash. The week’s activities were wrapped up with “Funday Friday”. A series of fun games were organised for infant classes by 5th class and senior classes attended a healthy food demonstration. We’re looking forward to next years Active School Week already!
