European Week of Sport

To celebrate European Week of Sport, our classes learned about a sport, dance, or game from a different country.

There was great fun had by all through this activity, well done to all students for being good sports, and huge thanks to all teachers for their creativity in this initiative.

Junior Infants had great fun playing a game called ‘Agalmata’ which is Greek for statues. One player stands in the middle with their eyes closed and counts to 10. They can open their eyes at any time and shout Agalmata! Any statues that are caught moving are out. 

Senior Infants played a game that is played in Italy called “Guardie a Lardi”. It’s a fun version of cops and robbers and there was great excitement during the game. 

1st Class took a closer look at Olympic handball known as European handball originated in Northern Europe. 1st class played a few mini games on our newly developed astroturf. 

2nd Class played a very fun game that originated in Denmark called “Danish Longball” which is a fun mix of rounders, football and dodgeball. 

4th Class celebrated this week with Finnish Molkky, French petanque, and Danish Longball! 

5th Class learned the words and dance of the New Zealand ‘Haka’.

6th Class played an Indian game called ‘Throwball’, which is a very simple but enjoyable game. Catch and throw, if the ball hits the ground on the other side, it’s a point. 

Well done to all involved during this fun initiative.
