Zoom with Rob Heffernan

We were delighted to have a zoom meeting with Rob Heffernan today. He certainly inspired 5th and 6th class to participate in the Youth Half Marathon  with Cork Sports Partnership & Cork City Council starting the 31st of May.

He spoke of the importance of exercise and keeping active.  He showed us his Olympic medal and his European Championship medal.  He gave us some great tips for the future.

We will participate in the Half Marathon: 21k is roughly 3k a Day!

Daily Mile

This term we are participating in the Daily Mile.  The Daily Mile is a social activity wherein children run or jog, at their own pace, for 15 minutes every day during school hours with their classmates. Everyone has fun taking part – it is not P.E. nor is it competitive – while building relationships, confidence and resilience.

Yoga

The children really enjoyed another Yoga session this week. These weekly Yoga sessions have helped the children to enhance their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness while also improving their concentration and sense of calmness.

Many thanks to our wonderful Parents Association who funded this activity.
