Calling All Super Troopers!

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!”

 Some come on Kilberry…. Who will be Kilberry’s Fittest Class come June!!!!!

The theme for Catholic Schools Week this year is Catholic Schools: Learning with Pope Francis to Care for Our Common Home. Here in Kilberry N.S. we have been celebrating Catholic Schools Week through art, song and prayer.

Fr. Hannon joined in our whole school Prayer Service on Wednesday in celebration of St. Brigid’s Day and Catholic Schools Week.

The children, led by Mrs. Prendergast, read and sang beautifully and the Senior Classes collaborated to provide the music on tin whistle.

All of the beautiful artwork the children created over the week was on display for our prayer service.

Lights, Camera…..Christmas!!

Posted by admin on January 8, 2017 in Uncategorized with Comments closed

downloadThis year’s Christmas Concert was a wonderful spectacle of festive fun. From the smallest to the tallest every child played their part superbly. Parents, Grandparents and friends were treated to a two hour show which began with the Infants production of The Christmas Story which featured memorable songs such as Knock, Knock, A Long way to Go and we all quickly learned that when Ceasar says Go….WE GO!!

First and Second Class had a tough act to follow but they certainly got the crowd going with their Beatles Inspired Play. Santa’s elves picked the worst possible moment to go on strike but never fear just as all hope was lost the Minions and Santa’s Spy elves were on hand to save the day!

After the interval, Third and Fourth Class discovered the true meaning of to ‘Love Your Neighbour’ in their production of Straw and Order. Poor Judge Grumps had the unenviable task of putting order on the donkeys and the cows that threatened the true meaning of Christmas.

The final act of the concert was the Fifth and Sixth Class production of X-Mas Factor where God held open auditions for the parts of Mary, Joseph, the angels, the shepherds and the Wise Men. KIng Herod was none too happy when he discovered the part of the King of Kings was going to…. A BABY!

The entire cast came together at the end to sing us out with a medley of Christmas Songs such as Silent Night, Away in a Manger, and our favourite Jingle Bells.

Many thanks to the Parents Council for holding the raffle during the interval and to all who donated prizes. As always, it is greatly appreciated.

Re-live the memories of the 2016 Christmas Show as DVD’s will go on sale in January.. Please order your copies at the school in the New Year. Many Thanks to Cathríona Byrne for filming and producing the DVD’s.DSCN6055DSCN6058DSCN6059DSCN6060DSCN6041DSCN6061DSCN6062DSCN6045
