We have received our Active School Flag and are very proud of our status as an ‘active school’.
We worked on improving and maintaining a high level of physical activity in school. This entailed all aspects of physical activity, including provision of physical education as per curriculum guidelines, additional physical activity inside and outside the classroom, partnerships with the local community and the organisation of an Active School Week.
We formed our Active Flag Committee, made a presentation at assembly to remind everyone to be active for 60 minutes every day.
We ran a photography competition with a large number of entries. We gave out prizes in various categories. These were presented by former Chelsea and England soccer star, Bobby Tambling. The committee gave a presentation at assembly to encourage ‘Do your talking as you’re walking.
Our Community Links included a cycling course organised through Cork City Council Sports Partnership. We also enjoyed cricket coaching with Ted Williamson.
Our Active School Committee took a survey from third to sixth class to see how many clubs we are in.
It turns out that we are involved in a whopping TWENTY EIGHT different clubs around Cork, ranging from athletics to gymnastics to pitch and putt to squash!
The variety of sports we do in this school varies dramatically. That shows how sporty, active and athletic St. Luke’s really is. It also shows how lucky we are to live in a thriving active community that really does have something for everyone!
