Active School Flag Raising!
On Friday 4th May there were great celebrations when our school invited family, friends and guests to join us in raising the Active School Flag. On the day we showcased one of our ‘Fit for 5’ routines, with all students and staff getting involved. Next, the Active School Committee and Ms. Murphy spoke about the process from beginning the programme to receiving our flag. We then asked our invited guests Jimmy Crowe and Annette McCarthy to formally raise the flag for us, to which there was great cheers and celebrations. The infant classes waved their own mini flags that they had made. Around the school we had photographs of our active school weeks activities and other achievements, as well as our new homemade Ballygarrett Active Flag that classes designed together. 6th class performed some Irish dancing for us to conclude our day.
We are very proud to receive our Active Flag and want to thank everybody for helping us along the way. Don’t forget our Active School slogan.. If you want some fun, be an active one!
