Active Home Week 26th April – 3rd May
Our school had a great time taking part in our Active Home Week this year. We loved seeing how much fun all of our students had in the videos and pictures they shared with us. It was wonderful to see our students families getting involved too and enjoying being active together! Take a look at what we got up to:
Sarah managed to do the keepie-uppie challenge for an amazing 39 seconds but the video had to be shortened to upload. Well done Sarah!

What is the Active School Flag?
The ASF 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. The ASF is a whole school process that promotes physical activity in a fun and inclusive way for all members of the school community. ASF schools enable children to see that there are many ways to be active throughout the school day and within their local area. In particular, ASF schools try to find ways to encourage less active children to enjoy physical activity more.
ASF schools ensure that all classes are timetabled for 60 minutes of PE every week.
ASF schools promote physical activity throughout the day.
ASF schools work in partnership with others to promote a physically active school community.
ASF schools organise an Active School Week (ASW) as part of their annual school calendar.
The ASF is a Department of Education and S kills initiative supported by Healthy Ireland.
