Active Schools

In Scoil Mhuire we feel that promoting physical activity and well being is vital for the overall development of each child.  We aim to all types of physical activity and ensure that children are provided with ample opportunity to try a variety of activities.

We first got our Active Flag in 2017 and we plan to renew this next year.  We have continued many of the initiatives that we ran during that year, and we have embedded them into our school with the children being central to all activities.  We continue to run Active Breaks where the children in the senior classes lead the children in the younger classes by playing different games with them.  This has proved to be something that the younger children really enjoy and has been great for the confidence of the children in the senior classes.  We have our Active team go into each class on rainy days to do activities with the children that get them up and moving.  We have started a new initiative called ‘Play Together’ this year where all children in the school play with a different class each small break and get to play with the whole school over a two-week period. Our Active Week continues to go from strength to strength each year with the children getting to try different activities each year. 

Our Active Committee are vital to the success of everything that we do in the school and thankfully we are blessed with children that are energetic, enthusiastic and are constantly coming up with new initiatives that aim to promote health and fitness within the school.  We are very lucky that we have staff that row in behind all our ideas and ensure that physical wellbeing is seen as a vital component in the children’s lives.  

Active School Week
We will be holding our Active School Week towards the end of the year.  The Active School Week is an essential component in achieving the Active School Flag. We are really looking forward to all the activities that we will be doing this year.
