We linked up with John Doran of Kildare Sports Partnership. John very kindly paid a visit to our school during Active School week. He did fundamental movement workshops with three classes and really put them through their paces. The students and teachers enjoyed these workshops very much.
We were delighted when the local scouts group agreed to take part in our Active Schools week.
Olive Conroy and two scouts showed our 5th and 6th class how to erect tents and do team building exercises.
We are fortunate in Rathangan to have an active GAA club. Every year GAA trainers take part in our Active School week and provide many of our students with training in football skills.
The local Tennis club are kind enough to give several classes tennis coaching during Active Schools week every year. The children really enjoy the sessions on the courts.
