Active Schools

Active week 2020

This year active week runs from 27th April- 3 May. In previous years this has always been a very exciting and enjoyable week in our school, a week when we focused less on written work and more on physical well being.


Although Active Week cannot take place as normal this year, we would still like to take part and have we have registered at Activeschoolflag.ie to take part.


We need your support to ensure pupils can still enjoy Active Week this year, but this year it will be at home with the Active at homechallenge!

What you can do to support Active Week:

Visit https://activeschoolflag.ie/index.php/active-home-week-2020/ to find lots of creative ideas.

Ensure your child completes the grid each day writing about the ways they stayed active. (The grid is online in two formats to make this as simple as possible - it can be printed out and completed (a photo of the completed grid can be sent back at the end of the week) or it can be typed onto and sent back.)


We hope this will be a fun week for both pupils and their parents!

Please feel free to send any photos/ videos to the class teachers as we would love to see all the ways you are enjoying staying active!
