Active School

Scoil Chróine received their first Active flag during the 2017/2018 school year.

We are currently working towards achieving our second flag.



What is the Active School Flag?

The Active School Flag is a Department of Education and Skills initiative supported by Healthy Ireland. The Active School Flag is awarded to schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. The process aims to get more schools, more active, more often. Our challenge will be to find interesting and exciting ways to energize the school day because active children are happy learners!

Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates on how we have been getting active in school!

Our Active School Flag Committee

Our ASF Committee is made up of teachers and students who are elected from 2nd up to 6th class. The committee members work hard throughout the school year to keep all our students active and healthy. They achieve this by coming up with fun activities to play together during breaks, organising competitions throughout the school year, inviting external coaches into the school and they also encourage students to be active outside of school as much as possible.

We also encourages our students to walk or cycle to school as often as possible.


Active School Week is always a highlight in our school year and it will take place this year from April 26th – April 30th.


Scoil Chróine’s Active School Motto is-

 “Skip, hop, even run. Stay active and have some fun!”
