Week 3 and You Are a Superstar!
Aisling Moloney from RTE News2Day, along with our ambassador David Gillick, visited St Ronan’s NS on Sep 13th and spoke about Marathonkids Ireland. The students were filmed while running and doing warm up exercises.
Our ambassador David has already started visiting some of the schools that are part of the programme like St. Ronan’s and Bishop Galvin NS (South Dublin) and Scoil Mobhi and St Brigid’s GNS (Dublin City). You can watch the videos below.
This week’s visits will be as follows:
- Monday, Sep 23rd 9:30 am at Holywell ETNS, Swords
- Monday, Sep 23rd 10:45 am at Thornleigh ETNS, Swords
So stay tuned as David might be coming your way for some fun running and exercising!
Running and exercising in general is good for the body, as we learned in Week 2, but also for the mind and Week 3 will be about the Mental Benefits of Exercising.
In the Teachers Section you will also find the a nice and easy warm up exercise (one per week). This is the one for Week 3
