Active School Flag (ASF) is a Department of Education and Skills initiative supported by Healthy Ireland, and part of the National Physical Activity Plan. An Active School is a school where physical activity is valued, promoted and enjoyed by all. The aim of the programme is to enable schools to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. We achieved our first Active Schools Flag in 2016 and our second in 2019.
Last week, we celebrated Active Schools Week in Feevagh NS. It was a very busy and highly enjoyable week with both classrooms engaging in a wide variety of physical activities. The seniors played rounders on Monday, hurling on Tuesday, had an obstacle course on Wednesday and Football on Thursday. They arranged stations for the junior room on Friday: penalty shoot out, target throw, bean bag throw, parachute games and bowling. Then we all played a game of shark and fish and had a whole school soccer match.
