Brat Gníomhach/ Active School Flag

Our school now participates in the The Active School Flag (ASF) programme, established to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. The programme aims to get more schools, more active, more often.

Through our schools participation we are instilling in our pupils the importance of a balanced diet and exercise. Being more active, more often, has also improved fitness levels amongst our students with an emphasis on fun and inclusion.

The Active School Flag programme is a Department of Education and Skills initiative supported by Healthy Ireland (HI).
