Active School Update: March

We have been very busy the past few months with football, tag rugby and swimming lessons.

This month we have started hurling sessions with Conor Langton.


Our “Run Around Ireland Challenge” is taking place for the month of March. Each class has chosen a destination in Ireland and recorded its distance from Geashill. Every day we will run 1km a day in an attempt to virtually run to our destination by the end of the month. If 18 children in a class run 1km each per day, we will count that 18km as the total distance for the class on the day.

**All children are asked to wear appropriate running footwear and tracksuits for the month.**

Run, skip, jump, play- let’s be active every day!

Playground Leaders from 5th and 6th class have been working hard to organise structured, fun games at lunchtime for pupils from Junior Infants up to 4th class. All children are enjoying the games and we could not be more proud of our thirteen playground leaders as they continue to model excellent team leadership qualities for the younger children.
