Waterford Active Schools Programme (WASP)

The ever popular Waterford Active Schools Programme (WASP) kicked off in seven schools across Waterford last week.

The schools taking part are Ballyduff Lower National School; Glenbeg National School; Portlaw National School; Scoil Mhuire, Abbeyside; St. John of God National School; St. Mary’s N.S. Grange; and St. Mary’s Primary School, Dungarvan.

WASP encourages adults to do at least 30 minutes activity and children to do at least 60 minutes activity at least five days a week. Children in the participating schools are given a record card by their teacher and when the child/adult has been active the teacher gives them their reward sticker (Featuring Wizzy the Wasp the programme mascot) to stick on their card. The aim is to earn as many stickers as possible. Each class teacher is also taking part in the programme.

The programme started on Monday the 8th of February and will run for four weeks until Friday the 4th of March. This year the participating schools can enter a competition to win a visit from Wizzy the WASP who will do a Wizzy Workout in their school. All they have to do is send in pictures or tell us about what they are doing to get more active over the four weeks. The very best of luck to everyone taking part.
