Active Flag

December 9th 2021
We started our 10 Active Days of Christmas on Monday and are looking forward to getting Active again today! This is in keeping with our great active focus so far this term. Our Student Council members will be Active Line Leaders and lead their class in a different active move at line-up time each day. Our 10 Day Active Days of Christmas will finish on Friday the 17th with a festive Santa Dash along our Active School walkway.  We look forward to seeing our Active students in their Christmas jumper/festive clothes with their Santa hats/headbands!

November 29th 2021
As part of our 4 week Active Break Every Day Challenge we ran a whole school Active Slogan and Poster competition. Pupils were tasked with composing a new Active Slogan for our school. We were blown away with the fantastic entries & the judging committee had a very difficult job picking an overall winner. Kian in Ms. O'Regan's First Class was the lucky winner with his catchy slogan 'Stop Snoozing, Get Moving!'. Kian won a voucher for The Book Haven. The runner-up vouchers went to Darcey in Ms. Morgan's Junior Infants, Charlie in Ms. Meehan's Senior Infants and Fiadh in Ms. Brazill's 2nd Class. All class winners received a certificate of achievement. Well done to all on a  brilliant competition!

Pursuing our 2nd Active Flag!

This year our school community is working hard to earn our 2nd Active Flag.  Our student council
are a great help towards this.  They bring ideas to school staff and management and share ideas with the teachers and their fellow students. Below are some links to new relevant pages on our school website/general updates from the academic year 2021-2022 that we would like to share.

See our
European School Sports Day ESSD 2021 section for updates on a very enjoyable day held on Friday September 24th 2021.

"Active School, Active Halloween Dress up day" website page has some photos and video from our spookily special Active Halloween day.

We are delighted to once again continue our partnership with
O'Dwyer's GAA and Leinster Rugby.  We are very grateful to both bodies for our enhanced PE programme and for the coaching our children can avail of free of charge




We will post regular updates HERE on all the activities we will be undertaking and the fun we are having as we work towards our Active Flag.

What is the Active Flag?
The Active School Flag is a Department of Education and Skills initiative which recognises schools that strive to achieve a physically active school community by awarding them the Active School Flag.
To achieve the flag we will be working towards improving the physical fitness of all our students by providing lots of fun sports activities in school as well as promoting a more active lifestyle at home.
The flag is a whole-school initiative so parental involvement is an essential aspect to this process.
