From DLR Sports Partnership – Keeping families active

DLR Sports Partnership would be grateful if you could circulate the email below to your parents /student contact database. We have devised challenges to keep families active at home as we realise the importance of physical and mental health during this uncertain time. Please feel free to read the content below before sending.

Kind regards

The DLR Sports Partnership Team

————————————————————————–

We in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Sports Partnership know that this is a very uncertain and daunting time for everyone. But we also know that being active and having fun with your family is so important for our physical and mental health especially at the moment. So we’ve put together four different activity Challenges to suit all ages and abilities. They’re easy to get involved in, a great way to keep motivated and best of all you can do them around the home with your family.

 

All Challenges will run for the next 4 weeks and we’d really love to hear how you progress through them by sharing on social media using #BeActive and emailing us at sportspartnership@dlrcoco.ie. Of course please make sure to follow all Department of Health guidelines with regards to Covid-19 and maintain Social Distancing https://www.hse.ie/eng/services/news/newsfeatures/covid19-updates/

 

 

Please see our website www.dlrsportspartnership.ie to view more details on all the Challenges and on the other work we do.

 

1 -The Grandparents 15 Minute Challenge

Who – for children and their grandparents

What – a fun challenge to encourage children to make regular phone contact with their grandparents and engage in activities with them (physical, social and mental).

How – just print off the attached flyer/chart, fill it in as you go and email back to use when you’re finished.

 

2 -Move to the Rhythm Dance Challenge 

Who – for children and teenagers

What – visit our new YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPhBXjgEPP2wcLJeWpwSbQw to catch our dance tutor Cayisha demonstrate part of a new professionally choreographed routine each day from Monday to Thursday. Then join her again on Friday to go through the entire dance.

How – just watch and learn the routine each day, practice at home, record yourself (and your family) bringing the entire dance together on Friday and email us a clip.

 

3 -The Fighting Fit Challenge 

Who – for teenagers and adults

What – fancy a tough but achievable fitness challenge? Have you ever played Call Of Duty and thought you could hold our own, but could you pass the fitness test to really join in? Here’s our chance. We will post a fitness program each week that if you follow will culminate in you matching yourself against the Irish Army fitness test to see if you would make the grade.

How – just follow the weekly exercise programs, get into a healthy routine and try the fitness test at home after 4 weeks.

 

4 -The Scrambled Leg Challenge 

Who – for families and all ages

What – we’ve gotten out the measuring tape and have picked a few well known Irish landmarks that you and your family can pick to add up the kilometers from your daily walks to reach your chosen destination. This is a great one to also build in elements of geography, history, and maths for the budding homeschoolers among us.

How – just print off the attached flyer/chart, fill it in as you go and email back to us when you’re finished.

 

We hope these Challenges will help to build in the important daily activity and fun we all need, but if you have any queries or suggestions for other initiatives we’d love to hear from you.

Class Reps

To improve communication in our schools, each class has 2 parent class representatives who pass information via a WhatsApp group in relation to your child’s class to keep you up to date with what is happening within the school community.  A class WhatsApp group is essential for play dates, parties and social evenings and communication from the school, Board of Management and/or the Parents Association.
