Getting Ready for Active School Week

Our Active School Committee are busy preparing for Active Schools Week!  They have been visiting the classrooms and talking to their schoolmates about what activities we will be taking part in.  Everyone is very excited.  The committee also have been teaching the steps to the Cha Cha Slide to each class, which our whole school will perform on Friday as part of our Day of Dance!

Active School Meeting – Running Initiative

Friday brought an end to our running initiative for March.  For the past month, our staff and pupils have been encouraged to ‘Drop Everything and Run’ once a day, every day.

Today our Active Schools Committee met to discuss and evaluate the initiative.  Here are some comments the boys themselves had to share about running every day.

“It’s very good exercise.”

“It made us fit.”

“It was fun and it’s a break from work.  It was good to do the laps everyday.”

“Exercise is good for our brain.”

“In First Class we don’t get as much G.A.A. so it was nice to be active.”

“I learned how to run slower and control my breath so I could run for longer.”

Active School Committee Meeting

Our Active Schools Committee have been busy meeting up and discussing new excercises that can be done in the line. The boys decided on the following exercises and tried them out:
– Jogging on the spot
– Hopping on one foot
– Jumping Jacks
– Bunny Hops
– T-Pose balance
They are looking forward to encouraging their classmates to get involved in an active line after break times.
Good work, team!
