St. Louis Hurling team

The St. Louis Junior Hurling Team has been up and running for a number of weeks now and we have been super impressed by their progress. Our first match of the year is on Tuesday April 2nd in Kevin’s GAA grounds at 3pm where we take on St. Catherine’s in a local derby!

Orienteering in St. Louis

Room 15 were doing orienteering in P.E.

Orienteering is using a map to find clues. They used a map of the yards to find where the clues were and as a group they had to complete their task sheet.

It was great fun!

The Daily Mile

Frank Greally from The Daily Mile initiative came into our school. He spoke to the Active Committee and told us all about his background in running and how it benefits us all.

The Daily Mile helps children to get fit for learning by encouraging them to run or jog for 15 minutes every day. It promotes social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing.

We then tried The Daily Mile with Frank. We will be trying our best in St. Louis SPS to do The Daily Mile!!
