More Active, More Often - Talk For Parents

20th March 2018

A talk for parents was given by Elaine Murtagh in the school on Tuesday March 20th on encouraging children to be physically active for life. Elaine is a lecturer in Physical Education in Mary Immaculate College, Limerick. Elaine spoke about the benefits of children being active. She also gave many practical activities you can do to support your children being active. It was a most informative and worthwhile evening. Many thanks to our Parents Council for organising the event.
