Active Schools Flag

The Active School Flag is awarded to schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community.

We achieved our first Active School Flag in May 2016. Pupils, teachers, parents and the whole community worked hard to achieve our ASF status.

In our school, we select a new ASF committee consisting of eight pupils from 3rd- 6th class each year. The ASF committee are responsible for several activities such as collecting and distributing P.E equipment and leading the school in morning exercises.

 

Our pupils participate in many activities both in and outside of school. During the school year, we invite coaches into our school to demonstrate various skills to pupils. These include G.A.A, rugby and basketball coaches. Pupils from 3rd to 6th class attend swimming lessons for 6 weeks during the school year. We also hold an annual Active School Week. The children are involved in tournaments in school such as the Rackard League, Mini 7’s, Rounders and Soccer Blitzes.

All children should participate in at least 60 minutes of exercise each day to maintain a happy and healthy lifestyle!
