Here are a few highlights of the Active School Week 2017................
Check out our fantastic pupils being very active and enthusiastically trying out new sports and activities every day ! We had so much fun getting active and learning new skills including yoga, boxercise, HIIT class, basketball, Tug of war, Ultimate frisbee, skipathon and penalty shoot out.

As being physically active is encouraged wherever possible throughout each day , it would be a great idea to walk or cycle to school if possible, safely and accompanied by an adult always.  We invited a local member of An Garda Siochana to talk to all pupils in our school about road safety in these situations.

The Department of Education and skills and Healthy Ireland encourage all schools to organise an Active School Week with in their school each year as part of the Active Flag initiative. 
We Shaheeda Zainab Independent Muslim Primary School had our ASW April 24th- 28th and it was a huge success, enjoyed immensely by all who participated throughout the week. 

Big thank you to all the staff members for taking part and helping out , especially Ms. Lynch for organising the week and all the fun / physical activities. Ourselves and the pupils were delighted at the turn out of parents/ family members for the active picnic on Friday . We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
