Active Flag

on June 30, 2015

Last Thursday, the 25th of June, we raised our Active Flag. We danced the Dino Stomp and we were very good. Then one of the members of the Active Schools Committee, Ava Griffith, made a speech. She talked about all the activities that we did for example the 21 day challenge and the Active Week and other things too. After that, our principal, Mr. Lanigan, made another speech. Then Katie Walsh talked to us about always chasing your dreams.

She is a famous jockey and has ridden two winners at the Cheltenham festival. She began her riding career in 2003. She was the third woman to win the Irish Grand National. Finally, at one o’ clock, Katie Walsh raised the Active Flag. Everybody cheered loudly when it waved in the wind majestically.
