Active School Week 2021 officially kicked off in Burnfort National School on Friday after school with pupils completing 'Active Homework'. This is no ordinary 'homework' however. Pupils are being encouraged to 'get up and get active' after school by running, walking, skipping, playing football/basketball, jumping on the trampoline- the list is endless!
We are 'eager beavers' here in Burnfort and we actually decided to get a head start on our 'Active Homework' by dropping all other school homework from Tuesday the 8th June to the end of the school year. (Needless to say. both pupils and teachers were delighted!)
We stepped things up a notch from Friday and pupils have also been set a number of active challenges to try at home for Active School Week. These challenges have been set by teachers, local sports persons and Irish Olympians!
