Killavullen NS
Educating in a joyful, positive and secure setting

Get up and Go, to help our Active Flag Grow!

ASF schools work in partnership with others to promote a physically active school community. Partnerships within and outside the school are an important aspect of the Active School Flag. When a school participates in the Active School Flag Programme, it is vital to interact and engage with other organisations and clubs. We are very lucky in Killavullen NS to have fantastic links with local sporting clubs.

ACTIVE SCHOOL COMMITTEE

Our Active School Committee is made up of pupils from 3rd to 6th Class. They work hard to promote physical activity in our school.

We have held outdoor meetings to discuss and plan upcoming events and Active School Week. 

Our Active School Committee are involved in:

  • Helping to plan Active School events
  • Sharing Active School announcements on the intercom
  • Speaking to classes about our ASF events and bringing ideas to committee meetings
  • Organising and judging ASF competitions, such as our ASF Dance-Off and our ASF slogan competition
  • Helping to organise our PE equipment storage
  • Encouraging everyone to become more active! 🙂

NOTICE BOARD

We use our Active School noticeboard to display the great work done in our school.  At the start of our renewal process, we held a competition throughout the school to find our new Active Flag slogan. The response to the slogan competition was a great success with almost 30 entries. The winning slogan, and one we will hear over and over again this year, is very appropriate as we strive to add to our Active Flag collection.

VISITING GAA COACHES

Killavullen NS has a long running partnership with Killavullen GAA club and Killavullen ladies football. We have had fantastic coaches work with our school over the years, thanks to the local GAA club and to North Cork Games Development Officers. We have had coaching sessions  sponsored by our fabulous GAA Club. This extra expertise is very much appreciated! All classes received coaching, which should greatly improve their GAA skills and fitness levels. We encourage all to keep up their fitness levels.

SUPPORTING YOUR CHILDS P.E. LEARNING AT HOME 

Practical suggestions to further develop your child’s learning in PE at home and in the Community. Children should be encouraged to partake in physical activity where their heart rate is increased for at least 60 minutes each day. There are many great resources to support PE learning at home, always striving to make the activities fun for all.

FIT IN FEB. ’23!!

Let’s Get Active for Fit in Feb 2023

Pupils took home a ‘Let’s Get Active’ booklet from the Irish Heart Foundation, where they were asked to keep track of the amount of active time they took part in each day. This included break times, PE, after school activities, etc.  There were some other helpful activities in the booklet to get them thinking about what ways they could keep active over the 4 weeks of February, and reflections on how their weeks went.
