Active School 2015 Week 23rd March- 27th March
Active School Week 2014 7th April – 11th April
Couch to 5K run on 11th April and training schedule
Dear Parent / Guardian,
The P.E. department in Coláiste Na Sceilge are organising a 5K fundraising run on 11th April, 2014. The fundraising is for a 400 metre running track we are planning to put around our school football pitch. This, we feel, will be of enormous benefit for all members of our school community. It is so important that we encourage our children to be active, eat healthily, and take responsibility for their general health and well- being. We have attached a training program and we hope that you will engage in this fitness regime with your son/daughter. Each session takes approximately 30 minutes and you are required to train three times a week over an eight week period. Other training programs are available for smart phones. C25K Trainer FREE (Zen Labs), Try Couch to 5k (Aleksandar Vacic), Couch To 5K Workout (ITGenerations inc.)
Each student will be given a sponsorship card and must bring in a minimum of €5 each. There will be prizes for the students who raises the most sponsorship and if a card is lost or misplaced there is a €10 fine. All parents/guardians and other family members are invited to take part in the run also at a cost of €10 per adult. We feel this is an opportunity for us as a school community to encourage all our students to get active and what better way to encourage them then by leading by example. All staff members have been given the same training program and are embracing the challenge.
All students will be brought to Renard football field and the 5K will start here and we will run the circuit from the field down towards the Point and back up to finish at Coláiste Na Sceilge. It will be a staggered start and all participants will be timed. Our Parents Council are organising sponsorship for prizes for different categories.
So get out your tracksuits and runners and GET TRAINING and JOIN IN THE FUN !!
