Tug Of War

Tug of war is a non contact sport where every member of the team is equal. It is a sport where the team work is more important than any one individual. All that’s needed is a rope and runners or football boots. It can be pulled indoors in a sports hall or outside on the grass. The Irish Tug of War Association are running a development project with schools around the country, co-ordinated by Cathy O’ Toole to tie in with the Active School Flag initiative. As part of our Active Schools Week Cathy visited St. Declan’s to teach our third and fourth classes how to participate in Tug Of War. The children got stuck in and really enjoyed the event. We got to keep the rope and we will definitely be using it again as part of our PE lessons. Thank you to Ms Quinlan for organizing the event
