Healthy Living Week at St Joseph's

This week is Healthy Living Week at St Joseph's NS, writes Marion Sherlock. We have an action-packed agenda for the week.

Today's theme is Friendship. We learnt what it means to be a good friend and how to look after your friends. The highlight of the day was our feedback from Kenya at 11am. Gerry O'Donoghue from Maintain Hope took some recordings of the staff and children singing and dancing before his trip to Kenya in February. We even wrote individual letters to the children and sent them some small gifts. Gerry came in to show us recordings of our friends in Kenya performing for us. As always we love to hear good news stories for us.

Tomorrow our PTA are coming in with some edible surprises for each class. Yes we will be focusing on Healthy Eating.

Join us on Wednesday for a walk across the Curragh departing the school at 10am.

Thursday is Relaxation Day. Celine from Relax Kids is coming in to teach us some relaxation techniques.

Friday is team building day with a combination of activities for everybody at activities to suit everybody.
