We kick started our new school year, with Games. We had great fun playing lots of different types of games with our classmates!




Outdoor and Adventure 


During the month of October, we used our own school environment for our outdoor and adventure lessons.




We have been Busy BEES!



During the months of November and December, we have been doing Dance! We had great fun learning some new dance moves and dancing to our favourite tunes.




 As part of the Physical Education curriculum, all children from Junior Infants to sixth class completed a block of swimming lessons in Coral Leisure Centre in Monaghan.  They have been learning how to swim using a float, the front crawl and back stroke. All the children really enjoyed this great experience. A big thanks to the swimming instructors and to the parents who helped out. 







During the month of March, we focused on the strand of Athletics. 

Athletics is our priority strand for this year. 



Our School Team took part in the Primary School Athletic Competition in Kilmore. 

Well done to all the children involved!
