The Active School Flag (ASF) is a Department of Education whole school initiative. Organised through the Mayo Education Centre and supported by Health Ireland it aims to acknowledge schools that strive to promote the benefits of being physically active. In order to achieve the ASF, the school must firstly self evaluate and then plan, implement and monitor improvements in physical activity across the school community, as well as holding one Active school 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.
