Well Being Week Activities
Well being Week took place in the school from May 2nd-5th 2023. Lots of activities were organised for each class. Junior and Senior infants took part in a teddy bear picnic and an obstacle course. 1st -6th Classes competed in 'The Cube' activities in the hall. All the classes took part in dance or yoga lessons with Ms. Whyte and Ms. Bagnall. Ms. Bagnall's 5th Class created 'Multicultural Food Experience' where the children in the school were invited to try food from all over the world. The children did an amazing job creating such a huge variety of dishes for everyone to try. Classes were invited to enter the poster competition and the results will be released next week. The whole school engaged in a mindful walk around Longwood, chatting to their friends along the way. On Friday we had a non uniform day. Everyone dressed up in bright colours to support neurodiversity and Autism awareness and we had a school assembly. To finish off the week Ms. Ní Scolaí held a 'Feel Best Fest' disco party in the hall, playing a DJ set that had everyone up dancing! Thank you to the Wellbeing committee in the school for organising such an amazing week of events for everyone.
