Rugby for Children in Ashbourne!
Ashbourne ETNS children from 1st-6th Class got to have a taster tag rugby session with Kevin from Ashbourne Rugby Club this term.
All children should be aiming for the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity each day. We would encourage all our pupils to take up a sport in order to help them achieve this along with the many other physical and social benefits sport brings.
Here are the contact details for any pupils who enjoyed their tag session and would like to try more:Minis Rugby Information
Active Week : Wednesday
Today saw pupils from Siofra’s class acting as sports leaders! They organised a fundamentals skills circuit for our junior and senior infant pupils. In addition to this, we welcomed Club Ash to our school. They demonstrated how to play an inclusive sport floorball, to our pupils from second class to sixth class. Children then got to play floorball for themselves! A massive thank you to Deirdre and Club Ash for supporting our pupils today.
