The Active School Flag (ASF) is awarded to schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. The process aims to get more schools, more active, more often. The Active Flag committee under the leadership and guidance of Ms. Keena work tirelessly in ensuring we are all active and healthy.
In our school we teach fundamental skills through a series of development stages.
Our School Walkway
Our School Walkway is just under 500 m. All the girls and boys enjoy having a chat and a walk during lunch. This numbered walkway is a great place for a catch up, some revision or some peace and quiet!
Our playground leaders are from the Senior classes. They organise and play games with the Infants.
We have active and movement breaks during the day in St. Brigids. A stretch and a run helps the girls and boys return to the classroom ready for more learning and fun!
Run a day Challenge
We all enjoy dressing up for Hallowe’en and love scaring everyone in Moate when we take a stroll through the town!
Nature walks along the Greenway and Dun na Si
We are so lucky to have the Greenway two minutes away from our school which all classes use regularly for nature walks. We also enjoy walks and trips to Dun na Si heritage park.
Sports Week 2023
We had a super Active Week from 24th – 28th April. Each day the children had PE and they especially loved gymnastics and orienteering. On Friday we had Sports Day. All the girls and boys enjoyed a fun filled day and played lots of different sports and games. They enjoyed dodgeball, volleyball, parachute games and even water activities. Thomas taught all the girls and boys some karate moves also! At the end of the day we all went to the secondary school to use their pitch where we had the final egg and spoon, sack and three legged races! Lots of parents came along to join in the fun and some mammies and daddies took part in the parents’ race! Finally sixth class pupils took on the staff in a tug and war competition! They showed their strength and won the battle! Great work sixth class!
