Fit4Class

We have started a new fun programme in our school. “Fit4Class” is Athletics Ireland’s new 10 week programme that introduces primary school children to athletics in a fun, engaging and non-competitive environment. It focuses on the use of games to develop fitness whilst enhancing agility, balance and co-ordination, all fundamental to longer term physical athletic development. “Fit4Class” rewards students for participating and having fun.

Cooking All Stars

We are very lucky to be chosen as one of the fifty pilot schools for SuperValu Cooking All Stars.

The SuperValu Cooking All-Stars will give children the confidence to safely handle tricky and precarious tasks like preparing vegetables and safely cooking healthy recipes like scrambled eggs, banana pancakes and even a delicious quesadilla.

Cooking All-Stars is designed to teach primary school children the crucial life skill of cooking to ensure that the next generation is going to be healthier and more confident in the kitchen.

The programme was carefully designed by a panel of nutritionists, chefs and teachers to make sure that both the teachers and the children will enjoy the programme as well as learn about practical life skills and a healthy eating ethos along the way.

We are learning about procedural writing, the food pyramid and healthy eating as part of the Cooking All Stars programme.

Watch out Neven Maguire!
