Active flag

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.


Active week 2018

We have had a jam packed June in our school and we are all feeling fresh and fit after all of our activities. On Tuesday we all got our Latin rhythms going when we completed a Zumba class! In comparison to that, we learned how to relax and stretch the body in our yoga class. Some classes also took full advantage of the fine weather and completed some local walks, the longest of which was 8.2km which fifth and sixth class flew through!

Active Schoool's Week June 2017

We had a fantastic week for active schools week. Our activities were superbly varied and there really was something for everyone. We started the week off with fantastic activities organised by the Irish wheelchair association. These included wheelchair basketball and blind soccer. These were challenging activities but great fun.

We then moved onto ultimate frisbee on Wednesday where we learned new frisbee skills and then applied them through games.
