Active School > Active School Week

Welcome everybody to Active Home Week Challenge 2020!

Active Schools Week is one of our favourite weeks of the whole year here in SS Peter and Paul JNS! When Mr. Donovan mentioned Active Home Week Challenge first, we were delighted because we could still get to do our Active School Week.  We did not feel as excited as usual because this year it needs to be an Active Home Week Challenge.  Then we thought - 'No! We are excited! This year we are just together in a different way - even though we are not in the same place, we can do the activities together!  Mr. Donovan did a great job rallying us all to make some videos to help you with your Active Challenge and we will post them here daily! We'll be doing them at home too, so what are we waiting for?! Let's get active!

Boys and girls, we made our Active Challenge Videos this week because you are so important to us.  We were delighted to get the photos and videos of you taking on our challenges with us at home.  Thank you for taking part and being such good sports.  Remember - being active is not just for a day, or a week - it's for life!  Below is a little video montage of some of our boys and girls - younger and older, being active this week.
