The Convent Junior School is currently working towards attaining our first Active School Flag.

What is the Active School Flag?
Active School Flag is a Department of Education and Skills initiative supported by Healthy Ireland. The Active School Flag is awarded to schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. The process aims to get more schools, more active, more often.

Over the last year we have been very busy in Convent Junior School working on the following areas: Physical Education, Physical Activity and Partnerships. We also organised an Active School Week in May.

Our Active School Slogan is “Don’t Sit, Get Fit!”

We held an assembly at school to celebrate all the brilliant entries we had from many students in the school and to announce our winning slogan “Don’t Sit, Get Fit!”

Well done to everyone who took part.

The winner of our Active School Slogan competition!
