FAI Five-A-Side

​Well done to the two boys’ soccer teams who entered the FAI Schools Five–A-Side tournament in March. Both teams progressed to the county finals and Presentation 1 finished as runners up. Well done boys on a fantastic achievement.
Well done also to the girls teams who made it through to the County Finals, and were so close to bringing home silverware, narrowly missing out on second place in the finals.

Lets Get Active with the Irish Heart Foundation

The Irish Heart Let’s Get Active Award is a fun way to encourage children to get at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
The pocket planners let children track how much activity they do each day.
After the  4 weeks –  each child is awarded a certificate of achievement –  also supplied by the Irish Heart Foundation.
This challenge is suitable for primary school children and is a great way to support Active Flag initiative in schools
In February we  received our ‘Lets get Active’ pocket planner and the ASF committee distributed one to every child in the school.  The planners were very popular and encouraged everyone to get active for 60+ minutes every day. The children also did Active Homework during this initiative. There were some excellent Active Homework suggestions from the ASF committee.

Get Active With Mullingar Shamrocks

In partnership with Mullingar Shamrocks GFC, the sixth classes in Presentation took part in an eight week fitness challenge. The children learned and practised several new skills, exercises and techniques including sit ups, squats, Russian twists, burpees and many more. We also learned so much about teamwork and co-operation as well as new ways of getting active and keeping fit. All the children put in a huge effort and on the final day of the challenge, competition was intense. Mr Kelly’s class were eventual winners by the narrowest of margins. A huge well done to all the boys and girls who trained really hard and learned a lot about the importance of exercise and fitness along the way. Expect even fiercer competition next year!
Thanks to Mullingar Shamrocks for taking classes for Gaelic football and also organising GAA blitzes for all classes over the last few years. Its a great way of introducing children to our national games.
