We are delighted to announce that we are currently working to renew the Active School Flag. The Active School Flag (ASF) is a Department of Education initiative which recognises schools that strive to achieve a physically active school community by awarding them with an Active School Flag.

To learn more about this initiative visit their website: www.ActiveSchoolFlag.ie

AS AN ACTIVE SCHOOL WE AIM TO:

1. Adhere to DES guidelines regarding PE timetable provision for all students.
2. Teach a broad and balanced PE curriculum.
3. Inform and invite the whole school community to participate in the ASF process.
4. Self-evaluate current provision in terms of PE, Physical Activity and Partnerships.

5. Plan, Implement and monitor improvements for each of the aforementioned areas.

6 .Organise an ‘Active School Week’ as part of the annual school calendar.

ACTIVE WEEK 2018

Active Week took place from the 18th to the 22nd of June 2018. The sun was shining and we all enjoyed engaging with lots of extra activities. We were very lucky that some coaches came to visit out school. Each class learnt some new kickboxing techniques. Students in Junior and Senior Infants learnt some new dance moves from Michaela, a dancing instructor. Students in First Class completed Athletics training with Collette while students in Second Class participated in Tug of War training.
Wake-Up, Shake-Up took place again every morning – it was great to see lots of participation from pupils, parents and teachers! This year, we had a whole school dance. We spent some time learning the dance moves to ‘Waka Waka’ (which tied in with the World Cup). The students in each class gathered together on the last day of Active Week to do the whole school dance together in the First and Second Class yard.
