 GET UP ON YOUR FEET!


Upcoming Active School Week

Active Schools Week will take place in our school from June 18th - June 22nd. As well as our Sports Days, the Active Schools committee is helping Ms Walsh and Ms MacNally to organise lots of extra fun, active events for the week. Better get training!


Do Your Talking While You're Walking

We want to help you get your 60 minutes of exercise every day. Instead of sitting down to chat to your friends at yard time, why not talk while you walk?

You will see some children wearing bibs on the yard who are called the Fit Friends. They will be helping you to be more active on the yard so try not to sit around. BE ACTIVE!


Super Troopers

February-March 2018


Did you know you are supposed to have at least 60 minutes of exercise per day? 

In our school, we are Super Troopers with Laya Healthcare, becoming more active and learning how to be healthier. The Super Trooper programme includes short, fun physical activities. We are Super Troopers and we are enjoying a nutritious lifestyle that supports our well-being.



10 @ 10

January 2018

Here at St. Luke's NS, we are active during the school day. We are taking part in Operation Transformation's 10@10 and doing an extra 10 minutes of exercise during our school day. We do a variety of things such as dance, yoga, zumba and aerobics. We love working out with the coaches, Míchael and Gráinne, from Operation Transformation. Click here or on the picture above to join in at home!


Marathon Kids

(September-November 2017)

 

Marathon Kids 1

Marathon Kids 2

 

Mr McKeown and Ms Kilcommins' 6th classes worked very hard this term to complete a marathon running initiative. They trained in school, completed the workbook and joined schools around the country in Santry's Mortan Stadium on Thursday 30th November. 

  

Here in St. Luke's, we are all so proud of their achievement. Every single child that participated completed a full marathon and their medals are a great reminder of how hard they worked over the last few months.
