Lisa Daly and Antoinette Gallagher recently visited 3 schools in the Castlerea area of County Roscommon as part of our National Active Schools Flag initiative. Students from Trien, Cloonbonniffe and St.Paul’s National Schools were given junior tug of war ropes and a schools tug of war demonstration by Lisa and Antoinette. The students then got to take part in competitions to put what they had learned into action, with some of the teachers even joining in as well.
This is the 2nd year that the ITOWA has partnered with the Active Schools Flag and it has been a massive success. This years programme is now well under way, with dozens of schools around the country being called to by our schools development officers and many more yet to be reached before we get to the end of the school year.
