Operation Transformation 10 @ 10

admin : February 15, 2017 11:48 am : 1st and 2nd Class, 1st Class, 2nd Class, 3rd Class, 4th Class, 5th Class, 6th Class, Active Schools Flag, Health Promoting School, News

As many of you may be aware Operation Transformation is in full swing on RTE 1 and one of the initiatives they have promoted this year is 10 @ 10. This is where they wanted to encourage schools all over the country to become active for 10 minutes on the 10th of February. Being a Health Promoting School and an Active Flag holder we thought that this sounded like a great idea and so all got out in the yard for our 10 minutes exercise. This was so enjoyable we have decided to continue for the rest of the year. SO on the 10th of every month the whole school will be getting outside for some much needed exercise. Have a look at some pictures from the morning below or check out our gallery page for more.

This year we were very lucky to be presented with a new set of school jerseys. The jerseys were sponsored by McDs Hardware in Loughrea and a big thank you must go to Gary Feeney and Paul Griffin from Loughrea Juvenile club who did huge work in helping to organise the whole thing. Below are pictures of the jerseys being presented to some of the hurlers and teachers from the school by Gary and Sean McDonald from McDs Hardware.
