Active Schools Flag is a Department of Education Initiative Supported by Healthy Ireland. The Active School Flag was launched by the Department of Education in May2009 and is organised through Mayo Education Centre. The purpose ofthe initiative is to recognise schools (primary, post primary and special schools)that strive to achieve a physically active and physically educated school community. The process aims to get more schools, more active, more often. We are working on the following areas: Physical Education, Physical Activity, Active School week & Partnerships... As the Active School Process welcomes community involvement, we would encourage you to be active with your child at home. If you think you have any skills or ideas that would be of benefit in helping us to achieve our Active Flag, please let us know! We would love for you to get involved! Your support of the Active Flag is greatly appreciated!
