Active School Committee
One of the most important partnerships in the Active School Flag programme is with the pupils of the school. It is really the pupils that run the initiative while being supported by their teachers. It is important that all pupils have an opinion on the initiatives and activities we carry out so at the beginning of each year an Active School committee is selected. It is the role of the committee to represent their class at meetings and bring forward new ideas. The committee members also monitor the yard at breaks to ensure everyone is being active and people are walking while they talk. The committee members are also very good at reminding their teachers to take movement breaks throughout the day. We aim to have a committee meeting once a month and a committee member takes the minutes of these meetings. Take a look below at the photo of our 2018/19 Active School Committee.
Local Sports Partnership
When we started the Active School Flag process we contacted the Louth Local Sports Partnership to inform them of our involvement. We are currently in contact with them and are hoping to engage with them further in future. Click on this link to find out more. https://louthlsp.com/
Sport Against Racism Ireland
SARI visited us. In this workshop we had lots of fun learning, not in a classroom, but through soccer and on the astro-turf. SARI’s mission is to promote and support cultural integration, social inclusion and cohesion in the Irish Republic, Northern Ireland and abroad by using sport as a medium to combat racism, sectarianism, xenophobia, homophobia and all other forms of discrimination.
