All classes practiced their cycling skills on the school yard & Junior & Senior Infants went for a cycle across the road around the park & astroturf pitch.
First & second classes went for a cycle around the block in the village. Some completed the loop a second time!
3rd to 6th classes really excelled by cycling up to Feddans Cross and completed a loop around by Ross bridge. Not an easy cycle-well done to all!
Huge thanks to our parent volunteers who stewarded the roads and special thanks to Johnny Brunnock and Tom Hayes who helped out in school for the full day.
Thanks too to Barry Meehan who checked out all bikes of pupils in 3rd to 6th classes. He talked to the children about how to look after their bikes as well as sorting out any minor issues with brakes, tyres, saddles, bike chains, pedals, etc.
We combined the day with local History talks from retired Principal Catherine Power and all classes took part in a litter pick around the local area.
Children also completed Arts & Crafts activities & STEM activities based on Bike Day and kept a log of their own cycling over the whole week.
What a great day- we all thoroughly enjoyed it!
