An event in celebration of the end of Erasmus H.A.P.P.E.N.S took place in the 11th Primary School of Haidary on Wednesday 31st of May 2017.
During those two years all students, teachers and parents of our school and the wider community focused on well – being through healthier eating habits, an active life style and a work-life balance.
Students of all grades presented through dancing, singing, painting, reading and playing scenes of their everyday life showing the numerous benefits they have gained from this project.
The responsibility for coordinating the event had the Erasmus+ happens team with the help of many teachers of the school.
Local authorities, the mayor, teachers and head teachers from other schools, parents and families were present and enjoyed the ceremony.
In the end everybody left with a smiling face thinking how simple things can make our life healthier and happier.

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!
