St Laurence's provides for two daily playground breaks for all classes for 10 minutes and 25 minutes. At these break times, we use the school playground and the fantastic new community astroturf facility in Dr Ryan Park at the rear of the school.
Children are allowed to run around during their breaks and are encouraged to participate in a variety of different activities in zoned areas. Various sports equipment is available to them including footballs, skipping ropes and four square.
Some of the 5th and 6th Class pupils have been nominated Playground Leaders and assist with activities in the 1st and 2nd Class playground.
The school has signposted an Active School WALKWAY.
We encourage pupils to follow the signs at breaktimes and:
Do your talking when you are walking!
