Active School Week 2019

Check out the video below!

The Department of Education and Skills and Healthy Ireland encourage ALL schools to organise an Active School Week (ASW) as part of their annual school calendar.

The ASW initiative is about providing FUN and INCLUSIVE physical activity opportunities for ALL members of the school community. It allows schools to reinforce the message that not only is physical activity good for you but it also very enjoyable. It provides schools with an excellent opportunity to raise awareness about the physical activity opportunities that are available in their locality and to work collaboratively with students, parents and members of the community.

At St Margaret’s N.S. we hold our Active Schools Week in June to run in conjunction with our annual school walk and sports day. Take a look below to see what we got up to this year!.

Active Home Week 2020

Due to the Covid-19 school closure, Active Week 2020 was a little different. The children participated in a virtual Active Home Week Challenge. Our challenge like always, was to get everyone moving. To take part in the challenge the children had to engage in a minimum of 60 minutes of physical activity each day at home. See below for one of our school’s challenge charts or click here to view more details about our Active Home Week 2020.
