Stryker

We are so lucky that our friends from Stryker come to visit us in November to help brighten up our yard. The efforts they put in brightening up our railings, assembling sensory boards and painting yard games have already brought so much happiness to our students and we are extremely grateful for their help Here are some pictures of our fantastic friends at Stryker and also the wonderful Scoil Chlíodhna children enjoying their new yard. Thank you...

Partnerships

Partnerships within and outside the school are an important aspect of the Active School Flag. When a school participates in the Active School Flag Programme it is vital to interact and engage with other organisations and clubs. Active School Committee In Scoil Chlíodhna CNS we established our own Active School Committee at the outset of the process. The Active School Committee have very important jobs: They motivate us to get active. They organise P.E and playground equipment. They keep the P.E storeroom tidy. They lead playground activities on the yard. They helped in the selection process of our ASF slogan. They have committee meetings to plan and organise ASF events. They keep all classes up to date on ASF news and events. They keep the ASF noticeboard up to date.       We use Facebook and Twitter throughout the year to keep all our followers up to date on Active School Activities. These are also used to inform pupils and parents/guardians about physical activities that are available in Carrigtwohill and surrounding communities such as G.A.A training times. Our school also acknowledges physical activity and sporting success achieved during and outside of school hours through the use of Facebook/ Twitter and monthly newsletters. During Active School Week a daily Facebook post or tweet was sent out to update our followers on all of the activities. Our school invited different sports clubs/physical activity providers from the local community to visit our school for Active School Week in June to give taster sessions of their activity. New activities that we tried out were athletics, rugby, zumba and badminton.  Take a look at our Active Schools Week post to see all of...
