Active School Week 2021

Active School Week in Guardian Angels takes place from Monday 26th – Friday 30th April and we’re gearing up for lots of extra fun activities and challenges to celebrate. During the week, we’re asking every class to complete 3 Energiser Challenges including Run Around Ireland and Active Dance. Active homework will replace written homework and there will be extra yoga classes, playground games and a tug of war. Classes can set challenges for other classes and we expect it to be a very competitive week here! We can’t wait to see what online challenges will be set for us by the Fire Brigade, GAA clubs and an Garda Síochána.


During Active School Week we’ll continue our usual activities like PE, cycling, Run a K a Day, the 10 @ 10 and Drop Everything and Dance.


GANS is committed to promoting physical activity in our school and we were thrilled to achieve an Active School Flag during the 2016/2017 school year. We are now working hard towards achieving our second flag. More information about our Active Flag activities can be found here with regular updates also shared on Twitter. We strongly encourage all our pupils to achieve at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day and for them to get involved in sport to get active, stay fit and learn the importance of fair play and team work.
