What is it?
This year Powerstown ETNS are participating in “The 2018 European Week of Sport.” Physical Activity will be celebrated in our school from 24th – 28th of September!
Why are we participating?
It is important that our pupils get 60 minutes of moderate physical activity per day. Although the school day is very short, we encourage our pupils to #beactive and believe that is strongly supports their mental well-being, and therefore enables them to reach their true academic potential!
So, next week, each class will participate in daily exercises! Please ensure that your child wears runners and appropriate clothing to school.
How are We Celebrating?
We are going to the Eiffel Tower!
As part of European Week of Sport and the #BeActive campaign the entire school is going to the Eiffel Tower!
It’s 778km away. To get there, each class are going to walk, jog or run 55km. This is 55 laps of our yard. This equates to just 10 laps of our yard per day!
There is a whiteboard and calculator on our P.E board and each class will add their km each day when they come in from yard. A great way to integrate Maths in our #BeActive campaign.
Classes are encouraged to put 0/55km on their class whiteboard and either add or take away until they have reached their 55km target!
