Coláiste an Chreagáin Couch to 5 K

Congratulation to everyone on completion of our 5 K Run recently. This marks the completion of our Couch to 5 k Programme, which coincided with Active Schools Week. The aim of the initiative was to raise awareness of the importance of including physical activity as part of your weekly schedule. Each week, the whole school community were required to complete 3 physical activity sessions of 40 minutes.

Key to remember was no matter how slow you go, you are still lapping everybody on the couch. The programme was sponsored in part by the Galway Sports Partnership.
