Active Flag

 February 2017

Super Troopers is a new programme that aims to incorporate a minimum of 10 minutes exercise into every child’s daily routine. Here in Kilberry N.S. we will be following the programme over the next few months. Active homework will be part of each child’s homework every night!

How it works:

Each child will receive an activity journal which is divided into 4 week blocks. Each week there are daily activities to complete at home. Each activity should take 10-15 minutes.

Each night simply tick the box to show that you have completed a daily activity.  You can change the  activity to suit your own child/environment to e.g. jumping jacks/frog jumps/ jogging on the spot etc. Whatever works for you! There is also a box to fill in any additional exercise your child completes each day e.g. football, basketball club, swimming etc.

It’s easy….Simply sign the journal each week to show your child has followed the programme.

Our Active Committee will record the progress of each class.

Those who complete the programme successfully will receive their certificates and prize during Active Week .

Families can join in the Active fun with the Super Trooper Wallchart… Simply record each family member’s exercise and active activities each week and find out who will be your family’s Fittest Member! (Don’t Worry wallcharts are for home use only!)

 

“Now we have our Active Flag ,

Do not let your Effort Sag,

Up You Get, Do your Bit,

Help Kilberry to Stay Fit!”

Volleyball
The children from second-sixth class have been learning the skills of volleyball over the past seven weeks under the guidance of Tom Landers from the Newbridge Volleyball Club. Over the past few weeks the children have learned lots of different techniques, including the overhand catch, the correct serving technique and were introduced to the game of Catch and Throw Volleyball.
Today, Tom organised a Volleyball Tournament for the children, complete with medals for the winners and runners up. The classes were split into teams of four and the whole school was on hand to watch the highly competitive semi-finals and finals. A wonderful day was had by all and the teachers were very impressed by the skills on display.

Cumann na mBunscol Basketball Final 2015

Our boy’s team travelled to Newbridge last Thursday to play Kilashee N.S. in the Cumann na mBunscol Basketball final. This was a great occasion for the boys and we started strongly putting 4 points up on the scoreboard during the first quarter. Damien and Kevin were calm under pressure as they stepped up to the free throw line to put Kilberry ahead. We continued to dominate in the second quarter and went in to the second half with a ten point lead.
Kilashee, however, began to cause problems in the third quarter and our lead was reduced to six points going into the final quarter. Kilashee began to show their hand and pushed Kilberry all the way to the final whistle. They managed to claw back a couple of points from free throws but as we approached the final few minutes of the game, Kilberry dug deep and our defense held strong as the final whistle blew to the delight of the Kilberry team and supporters.
Joe O’Connor presented the trophy to team captain, Kevin Eustace and complimented Kilberry and Kilashee on a fantastic display of basketball skill. In a display of sincere sportsmanship, the Kilashee team asked Kilberry for a group photograph after the presentation and we anticipate an exciting rematch with them during the blitz in March.
Team: Kevin Eustace (Capt.), Darragh Foy, Scott Downey, Jamie Whelan, Dean Owens, Seamus Hickey, Christopher Wilson, Emmet Fanning, Ciarán Dunne, Cian McKenna, Alex Delaney and Damien Moore.

A team above all..Above all a team...!
