Last week Scoil Carmel celebrated and embraced Active Week with a busy timetable filled with fun activities including walks around the community, African dance classes, athletics on the school running track, skipping, dancing, yoga and karate as well as our regular PE lessons. A big thank you must go to Ms. Tynan and the Active Week committee for putting together the timetable.Take a look at some of the cool things we did to keep fit while having fun:
As well as taking part in all the fun activities with the boys and girls for Active Week last week, the teachers also went to their weekly Boot Camp session last Thursday to keep fit! It is a great exercise class open to all the teachers. It is run by Eoghan Barry, who used to be in the army so he is well able to keep us on task and keep the chatter to a minimum! He runs boot camps in Templeogue and Sandymount, so if you want to find out more about his classes, you can click on this link: http://www.realbootcamp.ie/
