Happy New Year Everybody! I hope you had a nice break and that the children are settling back into school.
We had an exciting day yesterday following a request from the “Operation Transformation” team to involve our school in an exercise video. A group of children from third and fourth class traveled to Malahide Rugby Club to record this along with Monica and myself.
The concept of 10@10 is that children and teachers are being encouraged to exercise for ten minutes at ten o’clock each day, in or out of the classroom. We partook in this last year in school and it was much enjoyed by all, with the well documented positive outcomes. Six schools from around the country were asked to get involved in the video recordings this year so we feel very lucky to have been asked.
The recording will be televised on RTE Junior on a Friday morning at ten o’clock very soon. We will give you advance notice when we know the definite date. It will also get a mention on the adult version “Operation Transformation”. So, keep an eye out for our budding stars, who really did us proud!
