Active School Flag

Scoil Maelruain Senior is currently working towards achieving Active Schools Flag status. The Active School Flag was launched by the Department of Education and is a non-competitive initiative that encourages schools to evaluate their current provision of P.E. and extracurricular sports to children and to examine whether they can be improved upon. We want to raise awareness about the importance of enjoyment, play and keeping fit and the Active Flags initiative helps us to do this.

Preparation for obtaining the Flag has already started with representatives from each class coming together with teachers to form a committee that is looking at new ways of to encourage all pupils to be more active. Check out the pictures from our committee meeting and first Active Flag lunch time activity which shows 3rd class students taking part in lunchtime “Station Fun”.

Keep a close eye on the school website to check out all the new activities and initiatives that will be coming up over the next few weeks.

Please take a look at the website www.activeschoolflag.ie to find out more about the Active School Flag.
