Máirt Macnamhach

St.Colmcille’s GNS prides itself on being a health promoting school. We have a very successful Healthy Eating Policy which was developed with the support of parents and children. We promote physical health and exercise with a wide range of sports activities available throughout the school year.

We are expanding on our health focus this year with a new initiative called Máirt Macnamhach. ( Meditation Tuesday). This takes place on the first Tuesday of every month. Instead of homework or screen time, children take part in an activity that places particular emphasis on family interaction. Suggested activities include baking, going for a walk, board games, phoning a favourite relative, or simply sitting down to a family meal.The children are very welcome to take photos to display on our notice board.

We hope all our girls enjoy our very first Máirt Macnamhach and we look forward to hearing all about it in school!!!
