Active Schools

Delighted to introduce Meelin N.S. Active School Committee for ‘22/‘23.
We are all very excited to be part of this wonderful school initiative where physical activity is valued, promoted & enjoyed by all.
 The children have active homework each night and the playground leaders set up lovely games for the children to play at break time. Well done to our committee for their great work .




A sincere thanks to the Parents Association for financing an array of wonderful equipment for use in P.E. class and also for Active Thursday which is part of our participation in the Active Schools Programme.
Great credit goes to the Parents Association and fellow parents who are continually fundraising and supporting the school throughout the year. Well done everyone! Fun times ahead!



We are loving our participation in the Active Schools programme!
Skipping challenges, playground games led by playground leaders, school walks, football/basketball/hurling in the best of weather.
Meelin N.S. setting the pace to get active, healthy and happy .



Active Week
We held our Active School Week.This was a very enjoyable week for all our pupils and the children got active in a variety of ways! We played table tennis, soccer, basketball, football, hurling and completed obstacle courses, active walk, dance off’s and had the best fun.
We also launched our Active School walk around the school which will be a permanent fixture on the school grounds.
We finished off the week with a group dance competition! Thanks to the Active School Committee for all their help.
Well done everyone




We are delighted to be taking part in the Cycle Right programme. This is a six week course where the children in 5th & 6th class will learn valuable skills & knowledge around bike safety.
Thanks to Cork County Council, Cork City Council, the HSE Health Promotion Dept and the Green School Programme for giving the children this wonderful opportunity.
 Looking forward to a very enjoyable six weeks!
