 Move Well, Move Often: 
This programme focuses on developing the physically literate child through the lens of fundamental movement skills. We have incorporated these skills into our yearly planning for Physical Education.  
Water Safety
Each class has completed the PAWS water safety lessons each year. 
Water Safety Ireland’s PAWS (Primary Aquatics Water Safety) outlines the essential life-saving guidelines that every child needs to know.
Run Around Ireland Challenge 2021/22
The children in Ms. Murren’s second class took the lead on The Run Around Ireland challenge this year. Each lap of the yard they counted as 1km and they ran to various landmarks around the country.
Her class then explained and demonstrated to other classes how this initiative worked.
Our local GAA club Thomas Davis have worked throughout the year with different class groups on developing skills.
Dizzy Footwork Dance Academy worked with first and second class children for a four week block of hip-hop dance classes.
