Active School Week took place 12th – 16th June. The week was bumper packed with activities which got all the children’s hearts pumping. The week was extremely successful and provided many opportunities for all members of the school community to be involved in an increased level of physical activity. Thanks to the Active Flag Commitee, staff, parents and friends of the school who contributed to making the week a success, and most of all to the children who participated and made their best effort in all activities.
