Active School Flag
The Active School Flag is a Department of Education and Skills initiative supported by Healthy Ireland. The Active School Flag programme encourages schools to strive towards an active school community. Schools wishing to obtain an Active School Flag carry out self-evaluation across 3 areas: Physical Education, Physical Activity and Partnerships.
Schools must also organize an Active School Week programme and include it in their annual calendar. The objective of Active Schools is to emphasise that physical activity is both good for you and enjoyable.
