Active Schools

The Active School Flag (ASF) initiative is a Department of Education and Skills initiative (DES) supported by Healthy Ireland (HI) which aims to get more schools, more active, more often. It is awarded to schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community.

Each flag takes two years to complete and this year we are currently in our second year of the cycle. We hope to submit our completed application at the end of school year 2020-2021, with the possibility of being rewarded our first Active flag before the end of June.

We are partnered with the County Board, and the children love when our local GAA coach Mr Cooper visits. They practice fundamental movement skills, GAA skills and play matches.

We take active movement breaks throughout the day, including everything from our Run Around Europe, Daily Mile, GoNoodle dances, Cosmic Yoga and 10@10.

We celebrate Active Week each year. Everybody wears their tracksuits, staff too! Active homework replaces written work and time is set aside each day for physical activity. Each Active Week, a full day is dedicated to PE and fun activities.

This year we also took part in the European School Sports Day.
