Active Flag

For the next few months we will be aiming to achieve the Active School Flag for the school year 2016/17.

What is the Active Flag?
• The Active Flag was launched by the Department of Education and Skills in May 2009 and organised through Mayo Education Centre.
• The purpose of the initiative is to recognise schools that strive to achieve a physically active and physically educated school community.
We will be implementing different sport activities within/outside the school and also encouraging all children to continue with their healthy lunches.
We will be starting ‘Walk a Mile with a smile’ each Wednesday morning at 9.20. The children must bring a tracksuit and runners to school every Wednesday.
You will be able to check what activities the school are taking part in on the website under the Active School Flag section.
