Active Schools February Challenge

Dear Parents, 

For the month of February, as part of our Active schools campaign we are going to take part in a February challenge called “Every Step Counts”. The main aim for the month is to get active. The first thing you need to do is print off the record sheet attached so that you can record the amount of steps you do each day. If you cannot record the exact number of steps that is fine just colour in the foot once you have completed your walk/run. If you miss a day then leave the foot blank. On Mondays, I will ask you to take a photo of your weekly steps & upload it to Seesaw. At the end of the month the steps from all the children & staff will be added up and the aim is that we will have walked enough kilometres to have reached a country in Europe. There is also an app called “Irish Life-My Life” which allows you to get steps for your local club-Clann na nGael. The club have already registered so if you would like to participate just log on to the app & follow the instructions to help them win prizes.(see photo below) Have lots of fun & remember every step counts🚶‍♀️🚶‍♂️ Miss P. Cunniffe.

Active Home Week April 27th-May 3rd 2020.

All  our families in Cloonakilla N.S. school  participated in the “Active Home Week” challenge. The aim of this challenge was to get our recommended 60 minutes of physical activity each day. We asked the children to find four different ways of being active every day, adding up to 60 minutes of activity each day and to record their activities in their Active Home Week Challenge Chart.
