We have good partnerships with local sports clubs and county programmes who come in during the year to give 6-8 couching blocks to our pupils. These include include Athy Rugby Club and Kildare GAA.
During our Active Week in April 2022, we invited the Athy soccer club and Grangevolvin G.F.C. to come to our school to give taster sessions and further build partnerships between the school and local clubs in our area. These sessions were enjoyed by both pupils and staff and we hope that they encourage more of our pupils to get involved in local clubs.
‘What Club are you In?’ Survey
On the 21st of February 2022, Senior pupils (3rd-6th Class) conducted a ‘What Club Are You In?’ survey to find out about physical activity opportunities in the local community. We learned that the pupils were involved in GAA, rugby, swimming, tennis, Athletics and soccer clubs in Grangenolvin, Athy, Castledermot and Portlaoise.
Active School Flag slogan
During December 2021, Scoil Naomh Treasa ran a poster competition to come up with our Active School Slogan. The children came up with all sorts of catchy slogans to remind us to stay active. The winning slogan, chosen by our pupils and school staff, was ‘If you move, you won’t lose’. This can be viewed on our active school board.
