Physical Activity
In St. Brigid’s N.S, we provide an opportunity for every child to become more physically active. We have a great variety of P.E equipment, outdoor exercise stations, handball wall, playground markings, astro turf pitch, basketball court and soft playground for junior classes. We have a new Active School Walkway around the school grounds, which we use for orienteering,  P.E. and active breaks from the classroom. Inside, we often use online classroom workouts such as Joe Wicks, 10 @10, Go Noodle, DJ Raphi. We also give physical activity for homework. These activities are devised by the teachers. We use resources from the Irish Heart Foundation and Bizzy Breaks also. Beyond the classroom, by the PDST is also encouraged to promote physical activity at home. We often team up with our green school committee for events such as Spring cleaning/ litter picking/  on our local roads as well as walking for water and our gardening programme. Overall our aim is to reduce sedentary time for children and to have lots of fun.
