Working towards the Active Flag......

Scoil Chiaráin is working towards achieving the Active School Flag. The Active School Flag is a non competitive initiative which highlights the importance of physical activity and sport in schools and communities in which they are based.The programme encourages all schools to evaluate their current position regarding the provision of P.E. and after-school sports. The school has selected representatives from 5th and 6th Class to form an 'Active Schools Committee' and these pupils work co-operatively with school staff. The committee meet and discuss activity-based topics within the school and community. The committee also encourages classmates to 'Be Active'. It is our overall aim to provide a wide and varied physical health programme in Scoil Chiaráin. We want to raise the awareness of the importance of being active, how fun it can be, how you can make friends and enjoy the benefits of a happy, healthy lifestyle. Watch this space as we endeavour to achieve Active School Flag status over the next few months.
