Active School Week
Active School Week (24th – 28th April, 2017)
The Department of Education and Skills and Healthy Ireland encourage ALL schools to organise an Active School Week (ASW) as part of their annual school calendar.
The ASW initiative is about providing FUN and INCLUSIVE physical activity opportunities for ALL members of the school community. It allows schools to reinforce the message that not only is physical activity good for you but it also very enjoyable. It provides schools with an excellent opportunity to raise awareness about the physical activity opportunities that are available in their locality and to work collaboratively with students, parents and members of the community.
Schools will receive an information leaflet about ASW (2017) in the early spring.
Schools are free to organise an Active School Week at any point in the school year if the above dates are unsuitable.
