Physical Activity

We are very lucky here in St. Mary's N.S. that we have a lot of space on our yard and around the school for the students to use when engaging in physical activity. We have a basketball court, a soft play yard for the junior classes and a grass pitch with goal posts, a trampoline and a wooden construction with swings and slides. 


Students are encouraged to be active during lunch breaks and can use PE equipment outside. The committee members often organise this and students can avail of different resources on different days e.g. skipping ropes, hurdles, hula hoops, bean bags, tennis rackets etc. There are also climbing frames and balance beams permanently left out on the yard. 


We completed the 'Active Break Every Day' Challenge over a four week period in November and December. We were introduced to various Irish Olympic athletes and each day we had a different Olympic Movement Break to try out.
