Active Schools & Active Schools Flag
The Active School Flag is an initiative designed to encourage physical exercise and promote healthy lifestyles within school.
It reminds us that all children need to be active for 60 minutes each day. Our school is aiming to earn its first Active flag this year.
A cailín in rang 6 designed our Active School Mascot “Harvey the Hamster” and a buachaill in rang 3 wrote our Active School Motto which is “Being Active an hour a day, helps you make friends, have fun, laugh and play!”.
We set active challenges this year to make sure we all get 60 minutes of exercise every day. The senior side have been running laps of the field to see which class can run the furthest.
“Fit Fred” has stayed with different classes on the Junior side to see what each class is doing to stay fit.
Our first active school week started on April 24th. This week ended with the Réalt na Marathon, on Friday the 28th. It was just a brilliant week!
