St Mary’s is getting an Active School Flag.

We have begun the process of applying for an Active School Flag.

The Department of Education and Skills wishes to recognise schools that strive to achieve a physical educated and physically active school community by awarding them the Active School Flag (ASF).

The Active School Flag will be awarded to schools that:

*Adhere to DES guidelines regarding PE timetable provision for all students
*Teach a broad and balanced PE curriculum
*Inform and invite the whole school community to participate in the ASF process
*Self-evaluate current provision in terms of PE, Physical Activity and Partnerships
*Plan, implement and monitor improvements for each of the aforementioned areas
*Organise an ‘Active School Week’ as part of the annual school calendar

We are currently setting up a committee of teachers, children, non-teaching staff members and parents. If anyone is interested in joining the committee, please contact Ms Doherty (Senior Infants) for more information.
