Fit February 2015 – Active Flag
In February 2015 it was to shake ourselves out of hibernation mode and put a spring in our step. Daily activity is very important for children and is part of being healthy. During the month of February we were promoting children and families together to be active every day. In school extra activities outside of PE time were promoted. Children were given some active homework each week which was carried out by all the family. Some active exercises/videos were put up on the school’s YouTube channel for all to try and they can be seen by clicking into the link below. From 3rd to 6th class we carried out a survey to see if there were improvements in fitness levels in one month. ‘Being active is fun’!
On Friday 7 Feb 2014 all pupils performed a Zumba dance in the school yard. The performance was a great success, the students had fun while being active and the event was captured on video and it will be sent in to Operation Transformation to show how active St. Colman’s N.S. is. The video, edited by Mr. McGrath, can be seen below. Thanks to Deirdre Sisk, Zumba East Cork for choreography and tutoring. Song is ‘Timber’by Pitbull featuring Ke$ha.
