Active Week 2017
We held an active week in St Aidan’s from Monday April 24th - Friday April 28th. The aim of our active week was to encourage students to think about how active they actually are and try to improve upon this. We set all students the challenge of completing at least 60 minutes physical activity every day during the active week. Throughout the week we encouraged students to take part in ‘5 at 5 past’. Students had to complete 5 exercises every morning during reg class. Other activities throughout the week included Long Puc competition, Target net competition, tug O war, keepy uppy challenge, volleyball competition and a teachers versus students volleyball and dodgeball tournament on the Friday as a finale event. Our students were also very lucky that they had the opportunity to hear from Top GAA Footballer, All Star and Dublin All Ireland Winner Jonny Cooper about what it takes to be successful. Overall the students had a wonderful week and we hope that both teachers and students improved upon their current physical activity levels as a result.
