Better health through better living
Healthy living week is a transition year initiative to promote a healthy lifestyle for all, especially students young and old.
Healthy living week will be held in the school from Monday 30th of September to Friday 4th of October. The Transition Year students are working very hard to put together a fun week to get all students up and active in order to live a healthier lifestyle.
What to look forward to in the coming week.....
Try this game with your friends and family this Easter break and you won't feel so bad when you finish off your favourite chocolate egg.
It takes just minutes to set up – all you need is a sheet of paper, a pair of scissors and some plastic fillable Easter eggs or small containers and you’re good to go!
Miss Hennessy has compiled a list of mini exercises for our hunt challenge.
All you need to do to set up this egg hunt is print off the list below, cut it into strips containing each mini exercise challenge, pop the challenges into the plastic eggs or container and then hide them around the house or garden. The first to complete all the exercises and find the egg is the winner!!
We are ready for Easter break after these last two terms. It's hard to believe how much we have achieved since Christmas... here is just a small selection of our adventures and successes
Healthy Living Week is a transition year initiative to promote a healthy lifestyle for all, especially students and young people. Transition year student, Aoife Redmond shares her experience of Healthy Living Week.
Healthy Living Week was held in the school from Monday 24th to Friday 28th of September. Healthy living week was the first big event for the school of the school year. It was a challenging task for all the transition years as we were put in charge of asking local businesses to come in and speak about keeping our body and mind healthy. In collaboration with the home economic teachers, Ms. Dunstan and Ms. Doolan, we made a timetable which included all the talks and active classes for the different year groups. In the timetable there was something for everyone, including free fruit and yoghurt being given out during break time every day. There was also a range of lunch time activities that were open to everyone.
All in all I think the week went very well and it was a huge success for the school in making everyone more aware of leading a healthier lifestyle and being more active. There were a lot of different activities and I think there was something for everyone. For instance, if you weren't sporty but you liked music or art, music lessons were held in the music room by some of the TYs. There was also a mindful art class held on one of the days that myself and a few other TYs attended and just relaxed and coloured for lunch. During healthy living week I also was took the opportunity to get fitter and eat healthier. Every day I went to the canteen to get some freshly cut fruit and a Glenisk yoghurt. I also attended the Zumba class held in the PE hall given by Dorinda Cuskelly. I really enjoyed the dance and fitness combined in the class and defiantly felt the burn in my legs the next day as well!
I love all things sport and being active and just helping others become more active was also a big part of healthy living week for me. It was a great experience and I really enjoyed the whole week. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat and I am already looking forward to next year.
