Virtual Sports Day  - Turn your school sports day into a reality

Virtual Sports Day Image

 

Facilitators: Éanna Casey & Adrian Ormsby

 

As we near the end of the final term, we all know that Sports Day is a day that many children look forward to. Sadly, this year they will not get the opportunity to enjoy this. We wanted to provide schools with a way of bringing the fun and excitement of sports day to the homes of children.

 

By attending our Virtual Sports Day Live Webinar, the teacher will get access to:

 

  • A step by step guide, on how you can host a Virtual Sports Day in your school.
  • A suite of resources including detailed explanations with downloads, explainer videos and music playlists
  • A  list of household items which can be substituted for normal school equipment

 

A number of the activities we have used reference the Move Well Move Often Programme (PDST).

 

We want to make our Virtual Sports Day resource accessible to every school and family, hopefully turning that end of year sports day into a reality for the children, and bringing some well-needed happiness to all the family in these challenging times.

Monday, 8th June from 7pm-8pm 

We welcome you to the SNA Online Zoom Breathing Space for some time away from the stresses and pressures of the times we find ourselves in. 

Come away for an hour into a space of rest and relaxation.  All you will need is a soft relaxing space (this may just be a cushion and blanket), a candle to light together (feel free to add more candles if you wish to your space), and if you want to light some incense or oil too.  Have a pen and paper ready for our gratitude and check in practices. There will be soft music playing but you might prefer to have your own music on as well in the background. We invite you to create a space where you feel cozy and can relax in.  This space is for you to restore and renew your energy and engage in guided self-care practice.  Never before have we needed these breathing spaces as much.
