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.
The Presentation College Workout Wednesday #PresWOW will take place this Wednesday 10th February in the afternoon 2:00-4:00pm. All staff and students across our school community are encouraged to get involved in our virtual physical activity afternoon! It's a way of getting people to have a break from screens....Images and Video from #PresWOW
