Active School Flag
Active School Flag (ASF) is a Department of Education and Skills initiative supported by Healthy Ireland. The award recognises schools which strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community.
We received our First Active Schools flag in April 2019 and we are currently completing lots of lovely activities to renew our Active school flag in 2023.
In order to achieve the flag, we have to:
- Adhere to DES Guidelines regarding PE timetable provision for all pupils.
- Teach a broad and balanced PE curriculum.
- Inform and invite the whole school community to participate in the Active School process.
- Self-evaluate our current provision in terms of P.E, Physical Activity and Community Links.
- Plan and Implement improvements for each of the aforementioned areas.
- Organise an ‘Active School Week’ as part of the annual school calendar.
See the Active School Flag Webpage for more information regarding the Active School Flag process. Keep an eye on this page also for upcoming events so you can be part of all the active fun!
