Active School Week 2019

A busy week of activity in Herbertstown NS!

This year’s Active School Week was a very enjoyable one with the school involved in many different activities.

On Monday, the whole school were dancing with Pat O’Dea and the school’s camogie team were in action in the South Cumann na mBunscol blitz.

On Tuesday, Mrs Heelan’s 5th & 6th class had a great time on their activity based school tour to Ballyhass Lakes in Cork. The rest of the school took part in Gaelic Football which was tutored by visiting coach Gearóid Balfry from the Munster Ladies Football Association.

On Wednesday our planned activity could not take place as we had quite a wet day. Rugby was the designated event and we had 2 visiting coaches from Munster Rugby in the school ready to get out on the pitch but unfortunately the morning weather never improved. They hope to return to the school before the summer holidays.

Thursday had a whole school walk up to Barrysfarm. The children also got to play basketball. After school training continued for the boys and girls in 4th, 5th and 6th in hurling and camogie.

Friday was our designated swimming day for 1st to 4th class while the infants and 5th & 6th had hurling with former Limerick hurler and current GDA James Ryan.
