Children from 3rd – 6th class participate in GAA football training with Pauraic Burke from Meath GAA/ Wolfe Tones every Tuesday.
We are using the Super Troopers programme with Laya Healthcare in our school to promote healthy minds and bodies both at school and at home.
5th and 6th class act as playground leaders on the yard. They play co-operative games with children from all classes.
All classes participate in The Daily Mile running initiative for 15 minutes every day. The children can run or jog, at their own pace, with their classmates, making them fitter, healthier, and more able to concentrate in the classroom.
Throughout the day we have active breaks scheduled to get the children moving during class. GoNoodle and 10@10 are just some of the ways we get moving at school.
During the months of September and October all classes will be exploring Games during their PE time each week. They will also work on the Fundamental Movement Skill of Kicking.
All classes receive 60 minutes timetabled PE every week..
All classes are taught at least 5 different PE strands every year.
From January to June all classes must complete their Super Troopers active homework every day.

Active School Week was a great success. A variety of activities including tennis, Gaelic games, hockey, yoga, soccer and gymnastics were enjoyed throughout the school.
A 10K organized cycle took place for children from 4th, 5th & 6th classes. Children from Junior Infants – 3rd took part in a walk of the same route.
