Active School Flag (ASF) is a Department of Education and Skills initiative supported by Healthy Ireland, and part of the National Physical Activity Plan. The ASF initiative provides schools with a framework to guide, support and incentivise them to work towards achieving a physically educated and physically active school community.Once awarded, ASF remains valid for a period of 3 years, after which time schools are invited to re-engage with the process.
Everyone here at Ahane N.S. are proud to say we have achieved our Active Flag! We have had a great time taking steps in achieving this and taking the steps to achieving a healthier lifestyle. The benefits of increasing our fitness has been evident in the fact that we are more energised for our school work and we are having fun trying new activities we otherwise would never have had the opportunity to try out.
Thank you to the active committee for all their help, ideas and work they put into getting our flag and long may the work and fun continue.
