Minister urges schools to get into gear for active school week 2016

April 19, 2016

Jointly sponsored by the Department of Education and Skills and Healthy Ireland, Active School Week will take place from 25 to the 29 April this year. All schools, primary, post primary, special schools and Youthreach centres are encouraged to include the Week as part of their annual school calendar. It is also an integral part of the Active School Flag initiative which recognises schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. To date 714 schools have been awarded the Active School Flag. ASW provides an opportunity for schools to collaborate with students, parents, local community and national agencies on a wide variety of activities. Get Ireland Walking and Rowing Ireland are encouraging schools to get creative as well as active, during Active School Week – See more at:
