The playground leaders are responsible for organising the equipment, setting up the games in the yard and packing up afterwards. They have introduced a great selection of games such as obstacle races, parachute activities, skipping challenges, basketball hoops and activities with hola hoops. Each week the leaders demonstrate and teach the new games and activities.

Playground Leaders 2019-2020
These are our new playground leaders for this school year. They are very excited to get started with the games. We have decided that this year we will trial playground games in the hall at yardtime for one specific class per day. Here they will be safer to play games like basketball, soccer, GAA or circuits with a teacher and the playground leaders. The playground leaders are instrumental in setting up the activities and organising which class is supposed to be in the hall on a specific day. They will also give feedback to the Active School Committee on how improvements can be made to make it a success and fun during the year.
