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!!

Movement in Room 11

Room 11 were practicing dance in PE. We looked at the different ways that we could travel and the different levels we could make new moves at.

It was great!

WE DID IT!!

Well done to all the pupils and staff who collected the Aldi Rugby Stickers.

Today we put up our 300th sticker to fill the giant poster and we will be entered into a draw to win €50,000 for our school’s sports facilities.

Now onto the next one……..

Active breaks in Room 15

The boys and girls could not go to the yard at break time due to the rain and they pushed back the tables and chairs and did some physical activity using the 10@10 videos.

It was great to get physical activity even though it was raining!

Well done!

Sam Maguire visits St. Louis

Huge thanks to Paul and Kevins G.A.A who brought in the Sam Maguire Cup for a flying visit to St. Louis on Wednesday 21st November. The second class hurling team as well as the school football team got a chance to hear about the history of the cup, see it and even got to hold it. The cup weighs a massive 12.7kg and is made of silver. Here’s hoping that one of the children who held it today will get a chance to bring this cup or one like it back to us in the future as a winning player!!

De Le Salle soccer with 4th class

The boys and girls in 4th class are very lucky as some past pupils of St. Louis came back to our school from De Le Salle secondary school and were teaching them soccer skills.

It was so much fun and we are looking forward to next week already!
