Glenbrohane Active School Flag

Active School Flag

The Active School Flag (ASF) 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.

Schools wishing to achieve the ASF begin the process by self-evaluating their current provision across 3 areas: Physical Education, Physical Activity and Partnerships. Schools must also organise an Active School Week programme and commit to having it as part of their annual school calendar. Schools that can say ‘yes’ to all of the ASF success criteria will be awarded with the active flag. The flag remains valid for a period of 3 years after which time schools will be invited to re-apply.

ASF is a Department of Education and Skills initiative supported by Healthy Ireland. In 2016, our school entered into the Department of Education and Skills Active Schools Programme. Mrs Hyland took on the initiative to achieve the Active Schools flag. Our school is now working towards being awarded Active School Status. We continue to promote and offer a variety of physical activity options to children, in addition to the P.E curriculum.
