Active Flag

Harolds Cross are proud to announce that we are aiming to achieve our Active School Flag! Each and every child will be encouraged to be active during their school day with lots of fun initiatives taking place throughout the year.  Keep an eye here for some of the fun activities we are participating during and outside of our P.E classes.

Find out more about the Active Flag programme below:

Zumba for our whole school community –  Every Friday at 8:50 we try to get as many teachers, pupils and parents in the main yard for 5 minutes of Zumba with our fantastic instructor Audrey. This is a great way to get active and fit as well as waking us all up for the school day. Keep an eye here for some videos and photos from the busy mornings.




Whole School Zumba Blitz – Audrey was really good to allow all students from 1st to 6th class to come together one Friday afternoon for a Zumba blitz. This gave some classes who have been learning Irish dancing in P.E an idea of what Zumba dance classes are like. At the end we had a dance off between our two fifth classes and sixth class where we had 6th as the overall winners after a vote from the younger classes. Comghairdeas rang a sé!!!




Our close link with Crumlin GAA – We are so lucky in our school to have a new Gaelic coach Jonathan work with us this year. He is a very experienced coach and has amazing drills to help the children improve their Gaelic football and hurling skills. During December & January he has worked with one of each of our  Junior Infants, Senior Infants , 1st and second classes. In February, he will be swapping to take the opposite classes.
