Active School Flag (ASF) is a Department of Education and Skills initiative supported by Healthy Ireland, and part of the National Physical Activity Plan.
The ASF initiative provides schools with a framework to guide, support and incentivise them to work towards achieving a physically educated and physically active school community.
Once awarded, ASF remains valid for a period of 3 years, after which time schools are invited to re-engage with the process.
To celebrate European School Sports Day in September, RTE visited Catherine McAuley School and spoke to some pupils and staff. Take a look at the video below to see the report and take in a sample of some of the different PE activities happening around the school.
