The handball tournament will be starting in March. The match times, teams and all other information is on the noticeboard between Mrs O' Kane's room and 4th class.
Good luck to everybody playing.
We are thoroughly enjoying how well the Daily Mile is going. Everybody is up and active everyday at 11:40 for 10 minutes to get a movement break and to improve their fitness. Well done!
Wowee! We got a playground!
We must be the luckiest children in the whole of Ireland! Thank you to the PTA for helping us get to our target for our brand new playground. Our break times just got even more exciting. From swinging on monkey bars, to spinning on the roundabout, twirling in the egg cup, rolling down the hill, sliding down the slide, crossing the balance obstacle course, making games and play in the Wendy house, our options are endless. What a fantastic addition to our school yard, and a great way to keep us active in lots of different ways! Take a look at some of us having fun in it from the pictures above.
NEWS FLASH: Active Mornings
New for 2019-2020! We know you love active mornings during our annual active schools week each June, so, we have news! No more waiting for the summer time to play outside with your friends coming into school, at KCOINS we are having active mornings every Friday morning (weather permitting) starting immediately. From 8:30-8:50 each Friday you are welcome to enter the school through the side gate, rather than the front door, and leave your school bag at the wall. You may play in any part of the yard that you would like to until the bell rings, when your teacher will bring you into the classroom.
We are delighted to see our 5th class partaking in their annual cycle safety training as part of the SPHE curriculum. No better way to learn than by experiencing it in real life.
Take a look at some of our students from the senior end of the school practicing their Maths skills outdoors!
We love it when bigger classes join forces with smaller classes to help them with their learning. Everybody's skills were tested when some of the junior end of our school headed on an SESE exploration today!
Easter Egg Hunt Orienteering
Thank you so much to the Student Council for organising the best treat for us - an Easter egg hunt! The infants had to go hunting for their eggs, while the older classes had to follow clues and use their maps to navigate their way around and find the treats. What a yummy way to end the school term.
