On Friday the 8th of November the whole school came out to celebrate being awarded our second active flag. Órla Brennan, Chloe Lynch and Caoimhe Fitzgerald led the proceedings on behalf of the Active Committee. All the children took part in the 'Cha Cha Slide' before heading off on a few laps of our active walkway. The girls gave a great speech, thanking all the staff and pupils for working so hard in the lead up to earning our flag. The committee then raised the flag with the help of Jim, accompanied by a great cheer from all the pupils. To finish off, as a small treat, the children got an extra ten minutes playtime on the yard. Well done to all.
The pupils from 3rd, 4th and 5th classes were lucky to participate recently in a cycling workshop with coaches from Cycling Ireland. This was sponsored by the Kilkenny Recreation and Sports Partnership. The children had great fun along with improving their cycling skills. Some children even learned to cycle for the first time!
This year's Kilkenny County Schools swimming gala took place in The Watershed on Tuesday, 18th
of June. We had boys and girls from second class and upwards participating in front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke. Our swimmers were fiercely competitive in their heats and each swimmer gave their race their all! Some of our swimmers qualified for their respective finals and gave us plenty to cheer about and even pipped other competitors for a podium finish! Well done to all the pupils who represented Gowran National School in the gala- you did us proud!
