Active School Flag Ceremony 2019

Updated: 1st Oct 2019

We achieved our second ASF last June and held a ceremony last Friday, 27th of September, to raise our new Active School Flag.The ASF is awarded to schools that try to achieve a physically active school community. The process aims to get more schools, more active, more often. The ASF is a whole school process that promotes physical activity in a fun and inclusive way for all members of the school community. ASF schools enable children to see that there are many ways to be active throughout the school day and within their local area. In particular, ASF schools try to find ways to encourage less active children to enjoy physical activity more.

Mrs. Fitzgerald got the ceremony underway by welcoming everyone. She commended the hard work and dedication of the entire school community in helping to achieve our most recent flag. She continued by highlighting the tremendous work and time put in by the ASF committee and indeed the person driving the whole initiative, Ms. Harty. Ms. Harty introduced her hard-working committee and reminded us all of the activities we had taken part in to achieve our flag. Ann-Marie Rossiter, Chairperson of the Board of Management, presented Ms. Harty with a token of appreciation for all her hard work and commitment. Fr. Cooney blessed our flag before Sarah Lacey, a former pupil and member of the current Waterford Camogie Senior Team, helped to raise it to the delight of all in attendance. She was ably assisted by members of the committee and Jonathon.

Well done to all, Stay Active!
