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.
Within St.Margarets N.S we established our own ASF committee at the outset of the process. Children who were interested in joining the committee wrote letters of application explaining why they would like to be on the committee, how hard they would work and how they would inspire others to become active. The committee members keep all classes up to date on ASF news and events. The pupil members of the ASF committee were given leadership roles. Our school has an ASF notice board and suggestions box.
Our school also acknowledges physical activity and sporting success achieved during and outside of school hours.
