Active Schools Flag The Active schools flag (ASF) is a Department of Education whole school initiative. Organised through the Mayo Education Centre and supported by health Ireland aims to acknowledge schools that strive to promote the benefits of being physically active. In order to achieve the ASF, the school must firstly selfevaluate and then plan, implement and monitor improvements in physical activity across the school community, as well as holding one Active schools week that will continue as an annual event thereafter. Here at The Teresian School we have decided to embrace this challenge with open arms and have registered to work towards achieving recognition as an Active School.
