The ASF committee for 2018-2019 are Maddie, Christian, Daniel, Nikola, Amelia and Eoghan. They have been working very hard to make our school more active.
Some of the work they do includes:
- organising the activity zones
- bringing the equipment in and out at break time
- demonstrating what to do in the activity zones
- keeping track of how many kilometres each class has run in the Tour of Europe Challenge
- organising Active School Week
Some pupils conducted a ‘What Club Are You in? ‘ survey to find out about physical activity opportunities in the local community.
The sports achievements of our pupils achieved during and outside of school hours are recognised and celebrated in our whole school assemblies.
We have made contact with our local Sports Partnership, local HSE Health Promotion Officer and the local Sports Inclusion Disability Officer. Any information we receive from them is shared with staff and/or displayed on our ASF noticeboard.
