Hands Up Walking Survey

Our Green Schools Team have been promoting walking to school recently as we work towards our 5th Green Flag. This morning it was great to hear, that despite the wet weather, we had 106 children walking to school.

Remember you do not need to walk to entire way to school if you are living too far away. You can be dropped off or collected at Ros Ard or the Community Centre and walk from there.

Well done to all for the great effort and well done to our Green Schools team for this great initiative!


Operation Transformation

Our children, parents and staff took part in the Operation Transformation 10@10 in the Community Hall on Friday 10th February. Ms. Ahern created a workout routine for us and the children had a great time while keeping fit. You can see the full video and pictures on our Facebook page.
