SkoolBox is a creative online platform created to support teachers in many areas of the curriculum.
It’s the ultimate ‘toolbox’ for teachers!
We provide video lessons and printable activities. Our fun filled educational lessons will get young minds and bodies moving, capturing the imagination and attention of children with all learning abilities.
SkoolBox has been carefully developed since 2017. Founder Rachel Murphy is also Director for well-known dance club Fit Kids/Fit Teens which is located in 17 different locations around Leinster, choreographing and coordinating programmes to suit people from a range of abilities, ages and backgrounds. She captured the attention of the nation on RTE’s hit TV show ‘Operation Transformation’ in 2016. Rachel travelled around the country with colleagues Ciara and Donna Moran, visiting schools and encouraging young teenage girls to get fit through the medium of dance. Thousands of young people all over the country got involved and it was a massive success. Hundreds of schools were given access to online tutorials of our instructors teaching which transformed their mission into a nationwide success.
Rachel is also a founding member of Hip Hop sensation ‘Raw Edge Crew’ and has represented Ireland internationally. She has starred in Sky1’s ‘Got to Dance’, RTE’s ‘The All Ireland Talent Show’, ‘Swipe TV’, ‘Who are you kidding?’, ‘Super Crew’, ‘The Late Late Toy Show’, ‘Podge and Rodge’, ‘DCTV’ and more. In 2018 she coached her team to victory in the very first season of Ireland’s Got Talent where her team FKFT came 2nd in the Live Finals out of over 9000 acts, this team included young dancers from all over Leinster.
Not only has she gained popularity on TV, she has also worked with many groups in various schools and communities around Ireland, including; Youth Reach, FÁS, Blakestown Education Opportunity Programme, Foróige, School Completion, Girls in Action, Multicultural Day and
many youth groups around Dublin.
With a combination of unique skills, experience and qualifications Rachel has created a revolutionary online movement; SKOOLBOX.
