We are delighted to announce that our school will be taking part in the Active Schools Run Around Ireland challenge. This 4-week challenge encourages schools to build a running break into every day. It’s an excellent way for children to learn about some of Ireland’s most famous landmarks and ideal for bringing learning outdoors. 
Each class will run laps of either our school grounds or across the road in Killeigh walking track. The total laps completed by each pupil are added together to give a total for each class. For our younger classes 1 lap = 1 km. Our senior classes are trying to run 1km = 1km. After calculating our total distance we see how far we got to in Ireland.  

Finally, we wish to thank the committee of the walking track for kindly letting us use the walking track. This is another incredible facility in our locality and we congratulate the committee on their hard work making this wonderful facility available for the people of Killeigh.

This is the results of week 1 for each class. Well done boys and girls.
