The Active Committee has been working very hard to promote an active school environment. Every Thursday we meet in the computer room to discuss ideas and update the Active blog on the school website.
Recently we have been working on a very exciting project. We are pleased to announce a new competition to the school. A fifth class member of the committee came up with the idea based on the TV programme ‘Ireland’s Fittest Family’. Belgrove’s Fittest Family is a fun way to try keep the whole family active.
The competition will be run over three weeks. Each week will bring new challenges, getting harder every week. In week one, we are trying to encourage the whole family to be active. We appreciate honesty when completing the checklist to get through to the next round.
In week two we will expecting more of families. Our active challenges will require more time and effort. We will also be asking members to sign up and complete the parkrun.
Week three will be the toughest. Not only do we expect ALL family members to go on a 3km walk, but we also expect family members to beat previous personal best (P.B.) records at the parkrun.
We know that not everyone will be able to achieve all three rounds, but we are hoping EVERYONE will sign their families up for round one. The aim of this project isn’t to have one winner at the end, but to promote an active way of life and have a bit of fun!
Best of luck!

On May 2nd, some 4th class girls participated in a basketball blitz at the Irish Wheelchair Association.
They had great fun! They were active all day and played matches against other schools.
One 4th class girl made a delicious cake to congratulate the participants. How amazing is this?! The cake even looks like a basketball court 🙂
4th class were very busy this weekend!
A few girls took part in a gymnastics competition with Starz Gymnastic Club. They brought their medals and certificates to show the class.
Other students took part in a class feis with S.R. Nic Conuladh. They were at the feis from 3:30 until 10 o’clock. Even though they were really tired they still brought in their trophies and medals to show the class.
Clontarf camogie team were playing against Erin’s Isle. They were a tough team. There were three teams and they played three matches. Clontarf enjoyed the experience.
Tennis stars and stripes final was held in Castleknock tennis club. Oulton got second place in the doubles. Some of the girls from Belgrove were playing.
Congratulations everyone!!! 🙂
This year the 6th classes and 5th classes are trying very hard to achieve the goal of running a marathon. We are running laps 2-3 days a week and we are hoping to achieve the goal of 234 laps which is equivalent to a marathon by the end of the school year.
We are more than half way there to running a marathon, and we hope we hope we will achieve our goal by the end of the year. We are almost finished because everyone has been doing a great job and we will be running a marathon very soon.
On Tuesday the 13th of March the 6th class did a dance/gymnastics show. We were practicing for about 8 weeks and in the end they turned out really well. In each group there was about 5-7 people.
In every group there were different costumes and some people even had face paint. Some groups decided to put their hair the same style and the most popular style was Dutch plaits.
On the day of the dance lots of groups had to find a sub, as people were absent. Anyone who volunteered to be a sub had to learn a whole dance in about an hour. Every single group did really well and everyone had a lot of fun.
A few weeks ago, the whole school got the chance to try one fruit and one vegetable sent to us from Food Dudes. After trying one bite of every piece of fruit and veg, we got several prizes including a pencil, a rubber, a water bottle and a pedometer. We also got a fruit and veg container so we can bring in our own fruit and veg.
Everyone was very excited to use all the prizes and to see what fruit and veg we would get each day. When the week and a half was over, we started to bring in our own fruit and veg in our new container so that we could earn a Food Dudes certificate every week. Well Done Belgrove!
