Well done to our Debating team who were victorious over Presentation Convent, Castlecomer in their semi final, opposing the motion above. The team will now face St. Brendan's NS Muckalee in the final.
It is with great heart and enthusiasm that we embark on the renewal process for our Active Flag. Here at Gowran N.S, we focus on the importance of healthy minds and healthy bodies. There are so many benefits that come with being active. The obvious health benefits are increased self-esteem, greater concentration levels, along with the development of teamwork skills!
Our Active flag co-ordinators Ms. Nolan and Ms. O' Keeffe along with the Active Flag Committee have a wonderful programme of events planned out for the coming year.
We kicked off a few weeks back with our "Active Lines" and "Walk On Wednesday". Our Active Lines is where we do different stretching and exercises in our class lines at the end of lunch time to get our extra bit of exercise in. Each class will also go walking up around the village, all around the walking track and back to the school during lunch time, closely supervised by two teachers. It's great to get out and enjoy a brisk walk with our friends! We are also engaging in "10 @ 10" daily where all classes do ten minutes of exercise or "Brain Breaks" either at 10 o' clock or 2 o' clock. Stay tuned for all the pictures and activities that will be happening in our school!
Gowran NS annual Christmas concert was held on Tuesday the 18th of December. All classes from first to sixth sang a range of Christmas carols and also performed the Nativity story. Well done to all involved, it was a super day!
