Health and Active Week
Take a look at some of the activities organised for break and lunch time during the week.
The PE Department organised a number of competitive, fun events over breaktimes and lunches throughout the week, with all years taking part.
There was Rounders for 1st and 2nd years, Volleyball for 3rdand 4thyears, and Spike Ball for 5thand 6thyears.
The competition was fierce, but most importantly it was wonderful to see so many students participating and living up to the theme of the week, ‘Give it a Go’. Even Mr Woods and Mr Mackey got involved, and enjoyed some friendly competition in a game of ‘Spike Ball’.
The breaktime challenges included basketball shooting, speed gates and a test of reaction using ‘blaze pods’. Well done to 1A5 and 2A1 who were the overall winners of their respective Rounders competition. The winner of the Speed Gate Challenge was Cian Mitchell Doyle with a time of 5.42 seconds over 40 metres. The winner of the Basketball shooting competition was Ben Stewart.
The week ended in sunshine with a great turn out on Friday afternoon for the ‘Wesley Challenge’ which saw students & teachers enter the traditional ‘Wesley Run’ challenging themselves in the 1, 3 & 5 lap. This was a great opportunity to run, walk or just cheer on their friends. Congratulations to Tommy Cullen, Phillipa McGlinn & Jamie Byrne who were the winners of each category.
Finally, the week wouldn’t be the same without a staff challenge. This year we ran a Strava Event, which gave the staff 3 categories to enter, the winner was the staff member who accumulated the most kilometres over the week. We must congratulate Ms O’Brien, Mr Delaney & Mr Hosford for winning the Wesley Walking, Cycling & Running Strava Challenge respectively. The staff covered 800km throughout the week, a really great effort.
Well done to all the students and staff who both participated and helped out to make the week such a great success.
