Ex­er­cises for blue flag

Bray People - - PICTURES -

PUPILS at St Fer­gal’s took a step closer to earn­ing their ac­tive flag, by tak­ing part in Oper­a­tion Tran­sofr­ma­tion’s ‘10@10’.

This was part of a na­tion­wide ini­tia­tive to get chil­dren do­ing 10 min­utes of ex­er­cise at 10 a.m.

The chil­dren en­joyed ex­er­cises from a spe­cial Oper­a­tion Trans­for­ma­tion class­room video, as well as the iconic rou­tine to ‘ The Macarena’.

This team-up of the RTE pro­gramme and Ac­tive School Flag, is to help pro­mote phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity in pri­mary schools.

The flags awarded to schools for progress they make in phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion, phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity and part­ner­ships.

Schools also or­gan­ise an Ac­tive School Week pro­gramme and com­mit to have it as part of their an­nual school cal­en­dar.

The chil­dren and teach­ers all had a great time ex­er­cis­ing their mus­cles, and are look­ing to­wards earn­ing their blue ac­tive flag.
