Active School Week

Here in Mount Anville Primary School, Active Week is one of the highlights of the school year for parents, teachers and most of all, our pupils. A lot of planning and collaboration takes place to ensure our Active Week is the best around! We are looking forward to this year's Active week which will take place from the 27th - 31st May.

Active Week 2023

We celebrated Active Schools Week in June and it was a huge success! We started each morning with our Wake Up Warm outside led by surprise guests each day, including Team Ireland boxer Gráinne Walsh and Olympic swimmer Ellen Walshe. They kindly stayed to talk to classes about their journey getting to such a high level in their sport, and are a true source of inspiration for women in sport. The girls were also delighted to welcome back Ms.McGowan who led us in a workout on Thursday morning.

Throughout the week, each class participated in lots of extra sport activities, including trampoline classes, pilates and obstacle courses. 3rd and 4th Class took part in a Basketball blitz led by Ms.Cahalane. 5th and 6th Classes were given a very informative talk by Siobhán Berry of Mummy Cooks, about healthy eating and tips for incorporating more varied and balanced meals in their lives. The 6th Class girls taught dances to the school each day and organised music in the yard for the girls to enjoy or dance to while they played.

We finished the week on a high with a flash mob dance in the yard coordinated by Ms.Barnes. Even the teachers got involved! It was brilliant to see so many parents turn up to watch. We also had our Annual Teacher Vs Students Dodgeball competition on Friday afternoon, with our 6th Class winning on the day. Needless to say, the teachers have acknowledged the need for some more training before next year's showdown!

To top it all off, we had our Active flag inspection on the Monday of Active Week and are delighted to announce we have been awarded our renewal Active Flag! A huge thank you to the school sports committee, the staff, parents and volunteers who helped to make Active Week 2023 so enjoyable and a resounding success. We are looking forward to next year already!
