Run Around Europe

Following on from our Athletics in our school we began a running initiative in our school. We decided that we would ‘Run Around Europe’. This is a really clever activity that 1st Class teacher Ms. Mcgrath came up with. The idea of this activity is to get pupils of Ahane N.S up and running! Two times a week our teacher brings us out to the yard to run as many laps of the yard as we can in 10 minutes. After we run our teacher records and adds our laps together. Each lap is the same as one kilometre. Each class has a different colour shoe on the map. The laps that we do are updated each week.

Playground buddies

We have started a very special programme in our school this year as part of our Active Flag. 5th and 6th class have been working really hard during their lunch breaks every Friday to be playground buddies to juniors, seniors and first class. Each Friday two children from 5th and 6th come up to the junior yard for each class and play different games with the children. There is a rota that helps the older boys and girls know where they need to be each Friday. Th

Hurling Skills

To get us all moving, our school worked alongside Ahane GAA club to improve our hurling skills. Thanks to our teachers and the GAA club they got a hurling coach on board to commit to come in every Thursday to work with our school. It was decided that junior infants through to second class would have the first block of lessons and after Easter third through to sixth would get a chance to develop their skills. Each class got a 40 minute session with the coach where they learnt how to hold the hurley properly as well as rising, striking and soloing  the ball.
