Today began our Active week here in Piercestown NS. We began our day with ‘Wake Up and Shake Up!’ outside led by some very talented dancers from all the classrooms. The Junior end of the school got all pumped up in their warm up before getting to do the Cha Cha Slide. The Senior end of the school followed Ms. Sinnott’s lead and enjoyed their energetic ‘Waka Waka’ dance.
Our headline act today was of course Niamh Boggan of Body Feels Yoga (https://www.facebook.com/bodyfeels/) (https://www.instagram.com/body_feels/). The pupils of Piercestown got to stretch every muscle in a fun and enjoyable way before settling down and finding some inner peace through meditation. Everybody seemed to watch their worries drift away and find a new sense of energy afterwards. However some of the staff found it difficult to wake themselves up from their meditative sleep. It was a really great experience for all and we thank Niamh for offering her time to the school.
We also had the balance beams out again today testing the classes ability to find their balance even with a strong breeze blowing. However after the yoga the pupils showed how light and relaxed they now were. We also had the limbo sticks out at lunchtime and began to find Piercestown’s best limbo-er. We will see over the next few days who can really limbo, limbo, limbo.
