Active Schools

We like to keep active!

The Active School Flag was launched by the Department of Education in 2009. It is a non-competitive initiative which seeks to recognise schools that strive to achieve a physically active and physically educated school community. 

We are currently renewing our Active Flag and have been keeping active since September. Some of the active things we have done so far include dances in assembly, taking part in a whole school Céilí, participating in 10@10 Operation Transformation videos, Sporty Spring and lots, lots more.

Check out our notice board in school for updates, or ask an Active School Committee Member!
