Activ8 Challenge Update
We are now entering the last week of the Activ8 Go Outdoors 60x60 Challenge, so it is your last chance to get outdoors and be Active for this challenge. There has been some great activity figures recorded so far and we currently have three schools vying for the lead in the challenge, Tandragee Primary School, St Ronan’s PS Newry and Gaelscoil Na MBeann.
This challenge aims to encourage school communities (pupils, teachers, individuals, classes, whole schools and family members) as well as individuals to Go Outdoors to be active every day for at least 60 minutes.
Autumn is a brilliant time to go outdoors and as we have had one of the driest autumns on record, it has been a great chance to make the most of it and go outdoors every day and be active.
There are some great prizes on offer for those taking part in our challenge, including the top prize of an Outdoor Playmaker Award for the successful school.
The award is a great introduction into outdoor learning and leadership for children aged ten and over. The award aims to help children develop confidence, self-esteem and leadership skills in the outdoors. They will develop personal and group responsibility in a local but yet dynamic natural environment and will improve organisation, communication, teamwork and co-operation.
