Fit4Skool is a digital learning programme to promote increased opportunities for physical activity, healthy eating and will assist teachers in the delivery of the physical education curriculum. Students can access videos both in school and at home through the website.
C.B.S has registered as part of the Fit4Skool programme and it is being used in some of the senior classes. The class teacher will provide each child with a username and unique password which allows the children to log in at home and participate in some activities earning them points. There are three zones for the children to explore the action zone, the healthy eating zone and the challenge zone.

This year CBS took part in the girls’ basketball league. Our trainers were Mrs Murphy and Mr Corry. We usually trained two or three times a week during our lunchtime. Training was really enjoyable but we had to be focused for our matches. Our first blitz was in Gaeilscoil National School, where Clarecastle, Barefield, Gaeilscoil and ourselves took part. Our first match was against Gaeilscoil and unfortunately we lost. Next we challenged Barefield and luckily we won. Finally we played Clarecastle and we beat them well. After a long day of playing we were very happy with our victory but sadly we could not go on to the next round in the league, as Gaeilscoil won all their matches. At the end of the day, we were a bit disappointed at the way things turned out but we were all very proud of our performance and truly grateful to represent the school. Overall basketball was a great experience and we think everyone took something from it.
