As part of our Seachtain na Gaeilge celebrations, we held our annual céilí on Tuesday the 12th of March. Our pupils were busy learning the dance "The Siege of Ennis" over the past few weeks. Well done to all the classes that took part and a special word of thanks to Ms. Myles and Ms. Kelly who organised the Céilí. Bhí an-craic againn!

We began our running challenge on the 4th of March. Each year group will run to a different country for four weeks! 3rd Classes are running to France, 4th Classes are running to Germany, 5th Classes to Poland and 6th Classes to Norway! The active agents will write down how many kilometres their class runs each week. Best of luck to all our pupils as they run around Europe!
Wake Up Shake Up Wednesdays!!
On Wednesday mornings we do Wake Up Shake Up in the yard! The Active agents are doing a great job of leading and demonstrating the exercises to the rest of the children. A big thank you to Mr. Barnes for all his help in making Wake Up Shake Up a success for all our pupils!
St. Paul's Skipathon!
On the 18th of February, we held our Skipathon in the school yard. The children had alot of fun showing off their skipping! They also had a skipping challenge to see how many skips they could do in one minute! Check out our pictures to see the children in action, also the graphs which show how many skips each class got in one minute!
Fifth class Fitness Fun!
During the months of January and February, all children in fifth class practiced some fundamental movement skills. Each week, they focused on a different skill such as running, skipping, balancing, throwing, catching and using their bodies to make different shapes. All the children had a really enjoyable time and were tired afterwards! A big thanks to Mr. Giggins & Mr. Barrett for all their hard work and planning!
Some pupils got to show off their amazing skipping skills in assembly during the month of February! It was fantastic to see all the flicks and tricks that can be done with a skipping rope! Well done to these pupils for demonstrating their skipping to the rest of the school! A huge thanks to Mark from "skipnrope" for carrying out workshops to all the classes. The children had a lot of fun whilst being active!
