The Spraoi team together with Sketchers Ireland set up a competition for the classes to encourage tem to get active in the lead up to Active Schools Week. The two 3rd classes really impressed the team and won Sketchers goodie bags for their great efforts!
Whole school adventure!
On Wednesday of our Active School Week all of the staff and children went on a walk outside of the school grounds. This was very exciting for the younger children in particular and the older children went on a big walk all the way to Tower village and back again! Well done to all!

C.I.T, Sketchers and Project Spraoi
The Spraoi team have been working with the children from 2nd to 6th class all year and today they held a special event in conjunction with Sketchers and our Active School Week. We had members of the Spraoi team and special guests Yvonne O'Byrne (Irish hockey) and Patrick Collins (Cork hurling) who spoke to children and answered their questions. The 3rd class children also got Sketchers goodie bags for the great effort they put into the active challenge set for them over the past few weeks by Spraoi.
