Active School Morning Activities

Students in 3rd and 4th classes have been enjoying some very active mornings for the last few weeks with some fun activities taking place in the Halla before the school day starts. 3rd class children have been attending weekly “Be Active – Fun Fitness” sessions. With the help of some volunteer parents and teachers, the children complete circuits of fun, active stations. Morning badminton is also taking place with many children from 4th class coming to school early on Tuesday and Thursdays to enjoy a game- check it out for  a fun, active start to your day! Thanks to all the parents and teachers involved.
