Active School Flag

Ballyduff National School is working towards gaining an Active School Flag. There are four areas for the school to participate in and improve. These areas are Physical Education, Physical Activity, Partnerships, and Active School Week.

Throughout the year all the school community has been very busy and active engaging in lots of initiatives and activities. The school had Halloween yard games, fit for 4, movement breaks, playground leaders, yard games, discos, a céilí and many more besides.


An Active School committee was established with 6th Class, some Teachers and parents. The entire school community was involved in the process.

An application was submitted for accreditation in May and an accessor will visit the school on June 19th to access our suitability for being awarded the prestigious Active School Flag award.

A selection of photographs is available here to browse through, which will give a flavor of how active the school was!
