The Department of Education and Skills is delighted to welcome the HSE as co-sponsor for Active School Week (2014).
Active school week will run from the 12th– 16th May this year.
The Active School Week (ASW) poster arrived in all schools this week. All schools are encouraged to organise an Active School Week as part of their annual school calendar, regardless of whether or not they are working towards the Active School Flag (ASF).
Active School Week encourages schools to:
·         Organise fun, inclusive events for all members of the school community
·         Collaborate with parents, their local community and outside agencies to promote physical activity
·         Energise the school day by finding as many opportunities as possible to get students more active throughout the day
·         Find ways to make ALL subject areas more physically active 
·         Promote active travel
·         Challenge all members of the school community to achieve 60 minutes of physical activity every day
There is an Active School Week section on the ASF website which includes lots of ASW photographs and ideas. Many of the school presentations under the Active Schools section also feature ASW programmes.
