Active Schools Week

Active School Week – 4th – 8th April 2022

‘Téigh amuigh agus bí ag rith!’

Active School’s Week is a big part of our commitment to increased physical education and physical activity for our whole school community as we work towards the goal of Active Flag.  An Active School is one where physical activity is valued, promoted and enjoyed by all so we encourage you also to enter enthusiastically into the spirit of the week.
