Active Schools Committee
This is the 2018-2019 Active Schools Committee. It is made up of one pupil per class.
The committee meet up regularly and discuss issues in regards to keeping St. Louis SPS active as well as promoting physical activities in the school.
The committee provide feedback to and from their peers. The committee makes intercom announcement regarding physical activity in the school.
They come up with ideas to keep the school active. They discuss the active leader role as well as the active line activities.
They discuss P.E equipment and if report if any equipment needs to be upgraded.
All pupils in St. Louis SPS are offered swimming lessons every year. We work with Swan Lesiure to deliver an aquatics programme suitable for each class standard.
Tag rugby with Leinster Rugby
This year some classes are learning all about tag rugby with Ken from Leinster rugby.
Kevins GAA are partnered with our school and offer much support through coaching, transport to their pitches for training and games, equipment and much more. With the help of Kevins, our school has managed to give a large section of the St. Louis student body a chance to experience hurling and camogie.
Sam Maguire Trophy 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 College
St. Louis and Se Le Salle have a great relationship and every year we welcome back some transition year past pupils to help the pupils to learn and develop their soccer skills.
Dublin City Council
Dublin City Sport and Wellbeing Partnership invited St. Louis SPS to go #GAGA on December 5th
What is it?
As you may be aware, participation rates for girls in sport are much lower than boys. The aim is to promote and engage more girls in physical activity. We tried to kick start this by delivering a campaign called GAGA- Get All Girls Active!
All of the girls took to the yard to take part in different activities with Mr. Whelan.
It was so great so lets continue to go GAGA girls!!!
