On the 27th of February ,2018 the whole school from 1st class to 6th class got together for our School Sponsored Walk and Travel Flag Action Day.
Lisa O Grady from the An Taisce Travel Team joined us. All the pupils gathered to sing Our Green Code Travel Song in the school yard with our Green School banner before embarking on various different walking routes around Ballincollig. It was a great success and the sunshine stayed with us the whole way.
Scoil Mhuire had two wonderful days of skipping in September. Mark McCabe from SkipnRope came and introduced his wonderful skipping techniques to each pupil in the school. The girls enjoyed the skipping sessions and it is wonderful to see them practising their skipping skills at lunch break. The aim is to introduce children and teachers to the world of skipping. Skipping is a terrific form of exercise that helps a child’s agility, balance, hand-eye co-ordination and can increase speed through footwork. It teaches children about rhythm and when put into team routines, it provides them with team work skills and encourages them to have confidence in their sporting ability. It is a great way to exercise, maintain good health while having lots of fun. We hope the girls will continue to skip all year long!
A special thank you to our PFA who covered some of the cost of these two wonderful days!
Lots of fun here in school on dry, sunny days! We had a little Teddy Bear’s picnic today, followed by creative drawings on our school yard with mega chalks!
Active school week was a success this year. The whole week was active and fun and sports day was particularly exciting for everyone! We hope you enjoy these snippets of all the fun!
