This is an initiative supported by the Dept of Education & Skills, based in Mayo Education Centre.  Once awarded this flag is valid for 3 years. This initiative wishes to recognise schools that strive to achieve a physically educated, physically active school community by awarding them the Active School Flag.

Flags were awarded to school that:

  • Follow a P.E. timetable for all students
  • Teach a broad, balanced P.E. curriculum
  • Inform and invite the whole school community to participate in the ASF process
  • Organise an ‘Active School Week’

Healthy minds and bodies “Mens sana in corpore sano” is integral to our planning here in St. Joseph’s. We offer a wide and varied menu of physical activity, both indoor & outdoor as well as instilling the importance of healthy eating.
