6th class pupils begin Active Week with what has become their annual trip to Carton House. The GUI National Golf Academy is located in the grounds of Carton House, Maynooth. There they will get Golf lessons from head professional Kenny Fahey and his team of Golf Pros. We very much appreciate the support of Kenny and all the team at the GUI for our Active Week. We are very lucky to have such a valuable resource on our doorstep. Any boys looking for more information on golf lessons, clinics, summer camps at the GUI can contact them on 01 5054040 for more information
Active Week will kick off in Scoil Na Mainistreach with dance on Monday morning for Junior Infants and Second Class. We welcome local dance specialists Dance LA to the school to work with the boys. Dance LA specialises in Hip hop, jazz, modern and contemporary dance, musical theatre, singing, drama, theatre skills, audition technique and stage presence. They believe it is most important to teach and encourage their students in a fun filled atmosphere and to enhance their social skills and self-confidence. We very much look forward to welcoming Lorna and Adele to the school for what promises to be an action packed morning.
As part of our ‘Active School’s Week’ initiative and in an attempt to highlight the importance of physical exercise for children, the boys in third class have been invited to participate in a track and field training session in Celbridge Athletic Club.
