The Active School Flag initiative is a Department Of Education and Skills initiative supported by Healthy Ireland which aims to get more schools more active more often. 80% of Irish children, currently, are not active enough. The Active School Flag initiative Provides schools with a template to get their whole school active more often, within the confines of the school day - with an emphasis on fun and inclusion.
Did you know?? International research proves that active children:
- Focus and learn better
- Present fewer discipline problems
- Achieve higher test results
- Enjoy school more
