The Activ8 60×60 Challenge – Go Outdoors has come to an end and Sport Northern Ireland is delighted to announce the winners:

Congratulations to Tandragee Primary School, who won the top prize of an Outdoor Playmaker Award for the school and to the runners up St Ronan’s Primary School, Newry and Gaelscoil na mBeann, Kilkeel who won Activ8 Sports Day Pack for their schools.

Tandragee Primary School’s win was well deserved, with the school putting in a huge effort over the past six weeks to get everyone in their school community active outdoors. Pupils had the opportunity to take part in various activities including Rugby and Athletics.

Now in its sixth year, Activ8 is a participation campaign which encourages children and young people to do 60 minutes of physical activity every day to keep healthy. To help bring Activ8 to life, Sport Northern Ireland developed several programmes including ‘Activ8 Go Outdoors 60×60 Challenge’ to promote healthy and active lifestyles to children in primary school.
