From the 22nd March until the 26th of April 2021 we have been running around Ireland to reach different destination LANDMARKS IN IRELAND and tracking our kilometres.
In the Senior school the students walked/ ran/ jogged the pitch and worked out the kilometres to the destination LANDMARKS we had reached. The next part was to look at pictures of the landmarks on the internet or on google maps. Some of the classes researched the landmarks in more detail.

For our active schools Sixth Class sometimes ran or jogged the pitch or yard three times. We added up the amount of kilometres we did throughout and calculated distances to Irish landmarks. I and the rest of the school encourage YOU, YOUR CLASS and YOUR TEACHERS, to explore Ireland and its landmarks.
In the Junior School and St Joseph's, the classes ran/walked/jogged the yard to count the kilometres to reach the destinations in IRELAND, then looked at the pictures on the Active Wall to see where which landmarks they have reached!
We reached landmarks like the Spire, Aran Islands, Cliffs of Moher, Powersourt Waterfall,Hook Head lighthouse, Kilkenny Castle, Newgrange and the Blarney Stone!
A MASSIVE Well done to all the boys and girls and staff for getting involved! Get up, get out and move about!
