Re: Active Schools Programme
As part of our Active Schools Programme our pupils will be participating in the following activities:
All pupils will participate in Gymnastics. Pupils in J.I to 2nd Classes must wear their tracksuits for the next 6 Wednesdays beginning on 26th February. The children in 3rd to 6th Classes will wear their tracksuits for the next 6 Fridays beginning 28th February.
Pupils in 5thand 6th classes must also wear their tracksuits on March 3rdand 10th in order to facilitate golf lessons which will be provided free of charge by professional golfer, Leslie Robinson.
We are beginning a new initiative next week as part of our Active Flag Programme which will involve all pupils skipping daily. The aim of this initiative is for each child to skip the height of Mount Errigal over the course of the month of March i.e. 751mtrs. If your child has a skipping rope please send it to school every day and pupils should wear runners for the month of March.
Please refer to the school website www.killymard.com under Parents Zone – Healthy Diet at school.
As part of Seachtain na Gaeilge all pupils will participate in a Ceilí Mór on Thursday, 27thFebruary in the G.P. Room. Tracksuits must be worn on this day.
