Active School Week promotes physical activity in schools and communities. It is taking place from 25-29 April and is co-sponsored by the Department of Education & Skills and the HSE.
Active School Week is a central part of the Active School Flag initiative. The Department of Education and Skills recognises schools that strive to achieve a physical educated and physically active school community by awarding them the Active School Flag. Primary and post primary schools, special schools and Youthreach centres can apply.
