Dáil Report

After the success of our National Children’s Choir performance in the basketball arena, sixth class visited the National Museum and the Dáil. We learned a lot. Lucinda Creighton T.D. met with us and answered questions. Maybe one of us will be a T.D one day!

Active Wise

physical-activity-best-medicine

Following the success of last year’s Portion Wise Walk, a bigger event has been planned to raise awareness of the importance of physical activity so that both adults and children enjoy being Active Wise.
There will be an Active Wise Walk and Fun Activities in Bushy Park on Sunday 26th April at 3PM (weather permitting) so look out for our banners, posters and leaflets publicising the event across Terenure or follow us on www.portionwise.net.
With massive help from the local schools, parents and Dublin City Council, the event aims to encourage children and adults to share some experience of activities, by trying a new activity or even revisiting an old one.
There will be a brisk warm-up before the short walk around the upper level of Bushy Park, along the footpath, followed by a variety of activities planned for after the Active Wise Walk on the front pitch closest to the tennis courts. Here is a taster of the activities, all weather permitting of course…
• Mini-Cricket Blitz
• Tag rugby
• Athletics and obstacle course
• Hopscotch / Hula Hoops / Jumping Jacks
• Chair Fit for older adults

We hope that you will be able to join us.
