On days that the weather doesn't allow us to get outside for D.E.A.R. time we are able to have D.E.A.D. Cool (Drop Everything and Dance) time in the classroom instead.  We push our desks out of the way and our teaher puts a dance video on the whiteboard and we follow the steps.  This is a great way to work up a sweat while having great fun at the same time!  Some of our favourite dances are The Cha Cha Slide, The Gummy Bear Song and The Chicken Dance.

As part of the Active Flag initiative all the classes in the school have started participating in D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Run) time.  This involves taking a short break during the day to go outside and run three laps around the basketball court or infant yard.  Our teacher decides when we take this break and it is usually in the afternoon time after we have been sitting for a while.  We all really enjoy getting to run around the yard and it really helps our concentration when we go back into the classroom.

This year St. Mochulla's N.S. are participating in the initiative and hoping to achieve the Active School Flag. In order to be successful in the Active School Flag we must self-evaluate, plan, implement and monitor improvements in several areas such as the children's physical activity throughout the day, our active travel efforts and our partnership with the local community. We also need to hold an Active School Week during the year. You may have heard your child discussing the Active School Flag at home or mentioning the strategies we have already put in place. As the Active School Flag involves the whole school community we would encourage you to also provide opportunities for your children to be active at home. Additionally, if you think you have any skills or ideas that would be of benefit to the Active School Flag we would love you to get involved. Your support of the Active School Flag is greatly appreciated.
