Active Schools Motto - It's not time to sit, it's time to get fit!

Our Active Schools have been going strong in Killinkere NS for 3 years. We have been awarded our first Active flag which we raised in June 2019. We have continued on our journey with lots of activities planned. Check the page for updates to see how we are getting on. A big thank you to teachers Noleen Rudden and Patrice Clarke for the work they do in organising events.


Santa Dash Christmas 2019

Laya Super Trooper Health homework Programme

This Programme is designed around 3 main pillars - Physical Activity, nutrition and Well being. Each child received a wall chart with 10 weeks of one - a week family challenges. They revealed the challenge set each week by scratching the next panel.

Daily Mile

Our daily mile is an initiative we have continued from our first flag. The children really enjoy this activity and we can definitely see the benefits of this in all classes.

Active Walkway

Our active walkway is up and running around the school. The pupils follow the green walkway route markers which include lettering at the bottom to incorporate orienteering activities into the route also. There are four active blue markers positioned along the route as designated activity zones.

Active Week June 2021

Active week was a great way to end the year. A plan was followed for the week with daily activities set daily. The children were given active homework in replace of written homework. We received the active wheel from Cavan Sports Partnership which the children enjoyed using.

June 2021 - Marathon

On Monday 14th June we completed the marathon run as part of active week and our active schools flag. It was a great team effort by all with everyone from Juniors to 6th class playing their part. The children had been preparing for the day by completing out popular daily mile. The pupils really enjoyed the day. Thanks to Mrs Rudden and Mrs Clarke for all their hard work in organising the event. Pictures below.
