Active Week 2020
Active week is a week of fun activities held in June, ending each year with our teachers versus student’s soccer match. Unfortunately due to Covid-19 we were not able to have an active school week in school BUT we had a wonderful active week challenge at home. The aim of this initiative is to motivate young people to keep active at home by trying out NEW activities, taking on CHALLENGES and having FUN with family activities. To complete the challenge, young people have to find four different ways of being active every day, making sure that this adds up to 60 minutes, or more, of physical activity. All members of the family are encouraged, #Together, to take on the challenge. A huge thanks to all the parents, children and teachers who got involved.
Rathmore NS were hoping to complete a 1000km challenge over the week. Parents and children could walk, cycle, scoot or run. Everyone kept their family score, and our total was a WHOPPING 3210km well surpassing our 1000km goal. Well done to everyone.
Here are some photos of what everyone got up to for our ACTIVE SCHOOL CHALLENGE and some of our activity logs too.
