Active School

St. Mary’s NS has decided to participate in the Active School Flag (ASF) process and the associated Active School Week (ASW) now since April 2015.

The ASF process is an enjoyable experience for children and teachers and it brings the school community together in a fun and exciting way. It allows parents, local clubs and the wider community to become more involved in school life.

The Active School Week (ASW) was a new experience for our school. It was inclusive of all children and focused on cooperative games rather than competition. The children in the school completed many activities which they previously had not. It was evident from the smiling faces and the atmosphere in the school during ASW that the children really enjoyed the activities. The comments and feedback from teachers, parents and children further highlighted the fact that ASW was enjoyable, rewarding, fun and most of all active for all children in the school.

See the other sections of our website for more information and updates on our process.
