We had a very @ActiveFlag day for our Halloween holidays. The Halloween circuits were great fun and followed by a disco in our costumes. Happy Halloween!

We have had a great 6 weeks of handball here in Gortskehy, led by Tim Foley of Tourmakeady Handball Club.
Handball is an all inclusive sport, where anyone of any ability can play. It incorporates lots of our fundamental movement skills, such as catching, throwing, side stepping, running, balance and striking with the hand. It also enables children to develop other skills such as hand-eye coordination and concentration.
We were very lucky as we got to go to Ballinrobe Handball Alley to see a handball match. We also got to play in a 40×20 alley. It was a wonderful experience for the children to see a real alley and have the opportunity to play there.
We would like to thank Tim Foley for being so generous with his time over the past few weeks and giving the children the opportunity to try a new sport.

We are delighted to announce that we have just been awarded our very first Active School Flag here in Gortskehy. Well done to all the children for taking part in all the activities throughout the year. We are looking forward to staying active next year and doing lots more activities! Well done to our Active School Committee for all your hard work!
We are going to celebrate our achievements on Friday with an outdoor disco & party!
We went on our school tour last week. We went to Horizon in Westport. It was a very active school tour. We took part in lots of activities including archery, laser world, a blindfold walk, trampolining, aeroball, and we even had a go on the bouncing castle! It was lots of fun and we had a great day together!
