Active Schools Week 2021/School Tour

We were delighted to be in school this year for Active Week 2021. Throughout the week all children took part in a wide range of activities. The children wore tracksuits every day and on Tuesday and Thursday they wore club and county colours to celebrate #National Cumann na mBunscol Week. Knockainey GAA presented new jerseys to the sixth class on Tuesday.

We welcomed School Fitness Ireland to the school for the first time and they did Zumba, Boxercise and Gymnastics with the children.

Pat O’Dea was here on Tuesday and the children enjoyed dancing the final pieces. We walked around the ring in our bubbles and took part in a Soccer Crossbar Challenge as well as a running challenge EMOM, where the children had to run/jog for a minute and then rest for a minute. We really enjoyed these activities and meeting new coaches.

Sixth class pupils participated in handball with John O’Connor and they really enjoyed this.

In our classrooms we did Active Week acrostic poems, posters, designed jerseys and active challenges. On Wednesday, two bouncy castles arrived which was a real novelty for all children.

Ms. Keane brought her snake to show the children, and this proved to be a great hit.

We wrapped up the week with Active Kids Ireland and Gers Mobile Farm arriving to our ‘School Tour’ Day.

Please take a look at our photo galleries below to get a sample of the activities we did πŸ™‚

Sixth Class Graduation

Today was a very special occasion in Knockainey NS as we had the 6th class graduation. We had a lovely ceremony which was led by Fr. Cleary.

On the return to school the class were cheered at the entrance by the Junior Infants – a fitting gesture to see the youngest class cheering on their sixth class role models as they embark on the next chapter of their lives.

Afterwards the class received a gift of a 6th class hoodie from the Parents Association.

The children were delighted with their new hoodies.

Many thanks to the Parents Association for the hoodies, treats and balloons. A big thank you to Margaret as well for the lovely cupcakes!

Handball

A special word of thanks to John O’ Connor of Hospital Handball club who kindly gave coaching lessons to the 6th class pupils over the last few weeks. The children really enjoyed the training and they also learned about the history of handball and famous handballers.

John also held a raffle and some of the children won some fantastic prizes. If any of the children are interested in joining a handball club, make sure to check out the Hospital Handball Facebook page or else contact us here at the school.
