Active School Motto Competition

Congratulations to Shane Ivanoff who won 1st place in the Active School Motto competition and was awarded with the other prizewinners at assembly last Friday. His motto was: ‘Any shape, any size, everyone can exercise. Let’s get active!’. There was great humour and wit in the entries and Ms. D’Arcy and the Active Council found it tough to adjudicate! The prizes were all suitably active too! Well done Shane! It is great to see this motto in action in school as classes complete their walk around Europe!
