Walk it out Wednesday is a new initiative to promote exercise for our staff and students. Every Wednesday from 13:35 we will head out into the sunshine for a twenty minute walk. We are blessed to have had a Slí Na Sláinte installed in our school during the last year. Slí na Sláinte is an initiative developed by the Irish Heart Foundation, with the aim to encourage and increase the number of people walking. We hope to break the week a little bit by coming together for a chat and a good clear out of the mind. We hope you will bring in a pair of trainers today and every Wednesday.
We look forward to welcoming all students back to school next week. Parents have recieved details regarding the relevant assemblies as well as the links for the respective Parent Declaration Form which should be completed in advance of Monday.
