This week, Claddagh National School had the proud honour of earning the status of ‘Active School.‘ This means that the school has achieved the highest levels of engagement with our students in health and fitness objectives.
According to the website:
“An Active School is a school that strives to achieve a physically educated and physically actives school community. The Success Criteria will guide schools in terms of the ASF requirements and the Sample Improvements will show schools what others have done to achieve the flag.”
As part of the award, one of our students had the honour along with our Principal, Mr. Michael Gallagher ,of raising the Active Flag for the first time. Here is an article written by one of our students from Mr. Leonard’s Fourth Grade Class about this special day!
