    B.I.G.S and the Junior Park Run

    St. Anne's Park

    It was wonderful to have so many Belgrove girls and their families turn out for our 2nd Park run in St. Anne's. The sun was shining and great fun was had. Not to mention, some super running. Thanks to all the volunteers in St. Anne's. We hope to see you soon again.


    Junior ParkRun

    St. Anne's Park

    As part of our Active School initiative, we have linked up with the Junior Parkrun in Saint Anne’s Park once again! On Sunday April 3rd at 9.30 a.m., Belgrove Infant Girls School will receive a special welcome and participate in the Junior Parkrun.

    If you have never taken part in this before, do not worry! It is easy to sign up to be a Parkrun runner. By signing up, you can track your time weekly. The run is 2km and can be walked also.

    We will work on the skill of running in school too, to prepare for our 2km run in St. Anne’s.

    Should you choose to join us on the morning of the Parkrun without having registered, you can still do so. It would be great to see as many girls there as possible on the day – we want to beat our previous turn out from December 2019!

    Thank you to the wonderful volunteers of St. Anne's Junior ParkRun!

    WoW - Walk on Wednesday's

    Or scoot or cycle...

    Read More

    But every Wednesday put your best foot forward on your way to school and start the day the active way! 

    As part of the Active School initiative, our wonderful Parents Association are encouraging everyone to participate in W.O.W. by walking, cycling or scooting to school every Wednesday beginning tomorrow 4 November. 

    It’s healthy, fun, green and free!

    If you live too far away from school or are in a rush to get to work etc, perhaps you would consider parking a bit further away from the school and walking the rest of the journey. 

    This will reduce car congestion near the school and will also allow the girls to kick start their day with some fresh air and exercise!

    Everybody is a winner!

    Aviva Soccer Sisters

    Something to try this Halloween

    The FAI and Aviva Soccer Sisters are back this Midterm Break with the chance for you to improve your soccer skills, virtually. Sign up and receive daily messages and videos to help you work on those skills. It's a great way to stay fit and active this Midterm Break!
