The ASF committee organised a survey and conducted research, on the clubs, pupils of the school are members of. The details are displayed on a bar-chart which has been placed on our Active Flag notice board.The information is broken down by class also. In the near future, the ASF committee will be hosting a showcase day where they will present all of the different sports and activities that they are part in, to inform younger pupils of the clubs in our area that exist.
Today, we had a visit from Garda Kieran Lees, from Caherconlish Garda Station. Garda Lees spoke to the pupils about cyber bullying and road safety. As more and more pupils have started to walk and cycle to school, as part of the Active Flag campaign to encourage pupils to walk and cycle to school where possible, Garda Lees spoke to the pupils about the rules of the road, the importance of wearing a helmet when cycling, the importance of wearing a high vis jacket, the side of the road that we walk and cycle on and the importance of being safe on the road. Garda Lees also mentioned that he will assist us on any walk or cycle to school that we may organise over our Active Week. Sincere thanks to Garda Lees for all his help and assistance today. The pupils really enjoyed his visit.
Some of our pupils commenced a 7 week cycling course yesterday. They were taught about the safety aspects of cycling and bike maintenance. They then put this into practice. We look forward to learning new skills in the coming weeks. Sincere thanks to Mike and Aine from Ballyhoura. Thanks also to our teachers and SNAs for helping our pupils during the lesson.
We are on our HIGH HORSE after today! Today we were feeling very brave and STABLE! It was a SPUR of the moment decision when we became a little BIT adventurous and let go of the REINS, literally!
Special thanks to all the wonderful staff at Liskenneth and to our very own dedicated staff, they are the MANE reason we get to go horse riding once a forthright.
