Active School Week 2018 (23rd - 27th of April)

The Department of Education and Skills and Healthy Ireland encourage all schools to organise an Active School Week (ASW) as part of their school calendar.The focus of your #ASW18 programme should be on FUN and PARTICIPATION. It’s an ideal opportunity to introduce young people and their families to new ways of being active, both during the school day and in the local community. National Active School Week takes place from April 23rd – April 27th but if these dates don’t suit your school simply choose a week that does.

Junior parkruns

Active School Flag have partnered up with parkrun Ireland this year to promote the 13 junior Parkrun venues across the country. Primary schools are being encouraged to join in on the FUN at their local junior parkrun on the Sunday before (22nd) and the Sunday after (29th) national ASW.
