Partnerships

ASF Partnerships

Partnerships within and outside the school are an important aspect of the Active School Flag. When a school participates in the Active School Flag Programme it is vital to interact and engage with other organisations and clubs. We invite sports clubs, athletes and physical activity providers from the local community to talk to the pupils or to give taster sessions of their activity. We constantly try to raise awareness of the huge variety of ways in which people can be physically active.

Within St.Margaret’s N.S we established our own ASF committee at the outset of the process. The committee is made up of two pupils from each class in the school and they meet regularly with Ms. South to discuss their plans and initiatives for this active school year. The members keep all classes up to date on ASF news and events and they have various leadership roles and duties. Some of these duties include active yard monitors, PE equipment monitors, dance troop leaders and much more. Our school has an ASF notice board which is updated and monitored regularly.

Our school informs pupils and parents about physical activity opportunities that are available in the local community. The school has a strong relationship with St. Margaret’s Gaelic Athletic Club and we have weekly sessions with an external coach from the club.

St. Margaret’s N.S. acknowledges physical activity and sporting success achieved during and outside of school hours. The children’s achievements are documented on our school ASF notice board and they love to see their photos displayed.
