Be Active ASAP 2018

Ashbourne ETNS successfully ran an 8 week Be Active After School Activity programme for the third time in 2018 for our 1st Class pupils. This is a fantastic programme which offers an hour of physical activity to pupils free of charge, with parents and teachers volunteering and working together to facilitate it. The aim is to encourage an interest and develop skills in sport in the hopes they will take up a sport outside of school.

Thanks to our parent volunteers: Fran, Lynn, Mia, Tracey, Fiona and Dee and our teacher volunteers: Katie L and Katie K, Elaine, Síofra and Caitríona.
