Under the guidance of our PE teacher, Mr. Byrne, St. Laurence’s BNS has registered for the Active School Flag. Our aim is join a group of 626 schools around Ireland in becoming more active.
The Active School Flag (ASF) is awarded to schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. The process aims to get more schools, more active, more often.
In order to achieve the ASF we will begin the process by self-evaluating our current provision across 3 areas: Physical Education, Physical Activity and Partnerships. We must also organise an Active School Week programme each year. Schools that can say ‘yes’ to all of the ASF success criteria will be awarded with the active flag. We hope that St. Laurence’s will be flying the Active School Flag soon!
