We like to stay active in Our Lady's Abbey, so much so that we received the Munster and All-Ireland Active School Awards two years in a row. We are also the first school in Ireland to receive two Active Flags for our efforts in promoting physical activity.
We believe that children should be encourged to stay as active as possible including at break times. However, staying active has to be fun so the children are encouraged to play yard leagues at break time. Leagues have included Netball, Table tennis, Rounders and Foam Polo to name a few. We also have different "Yard Zones" where we play Golf, do agility training, parachute games, penalty shoot outs and much more on our break times. Our older girls are "Play Leaders" and they take responsibility for monitoring equipment, scoreboards and help the younger girls to learn how to play the new games on the different "Yard Zones". Check out all the sports that we do!!
