Scoil Eoin commits to having Active School Week as part of the annual school calendar. All activities are planned so that they are accessible by all pupils and the focus is on being active not necessarily being sporty. The pupils interests and abilities are catered for during ASW. Each day of Active School Week, we Wake Up and Shake UP with dance as a whole school on the yard before lessons begin. Teachers, staff and parents are welcome to join in the fun each morning. We find it increases the energy in the children and brightens our day. Tracksuits replace uniforms for pupils and teachers for this special week as we fully embrace being physically active.
Throughout the year we are very enthusiastic about promoting physical activity in our pupils but we make a special effort to promote PE in a cross curricular way during Active School Week. Lessons are tailored to incorporate more activity, outdoor work, trails, nature walks etc. In line with our Health Promoting Schools policy we focus on healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle during ASW.
We have many whole school fun events during ASW-
Children enjoy taster sessions from local sports clubs. This year, we welcome Barry O'Mahony Tae Kwon Do and Debbie Keane giving the children a taster of a vigorous fun filled Zumba class. This year we are delighted to have a brand new activity on our ASW Programme- basketball workshops provided by Cork Sports Partnerships
