This week Scoil Carmel is taking part in Active School Week to encourage and promote physical activity and exercise for children. Schools are focusing on the idea of a ’60 minutes a day ‘ challenge. This can include travelling to and from school, playtime, P.E, football, swimming, dancing, every little bit counts! Here is some information on how to help your children become more active.
As part of Active School Week the children can wear their tracksuits each day. There will be visiting coaches for fun activities during the week, each class will take part in one long walk in the local area and a daily workout for 10 minutes each morning. The children will be given ‘Active Homework’ in place of written homework to help them reach their goal of 60 minutes of exercise every day.
