Active School Flag Information
What is the Active School Flag?
Active School Flag is a Department of Education and Skills initiative supported by Healthy Ireland. The Active School Flag 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 June 2016 St. Margaret’s N.S. was awarded its first Active School Flag after a lot of hard work by the whole school. Special credit must also be given to the active school committee who promoted many active initiatives throughout the school year under the guidance of Ms. Keegan. In 2019 we went on to achieve our second Active School Flag with Ms. South as our Active School coordinator.
The Active School Flag is valid for 3 years. In 2022 we were awarded our third Active Flag. Keep an eye on our website for updates on what we’re doing to maintain our Active School Flag status. We continue to focus the development of the following areas: Physical Education, Physical Activity and Partnerships.
