Active Flag

Welcome to Our Active School Flag page The Active School Flag was launched by the Department of Education in May 2009 and is organised through Mayo Education Centre. The purpose of the initiative is to recognise schools (primary, post primary and special schools) that strive to achieve a physically active and physically educated school community. What is an Active School? An Active School is a school that “ strives to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community” Our aim here at Culfadda NS is to provide FUN and INCLUSIVE physical activity opportunities for all our students, within the school day The Active school ethos allows schools to reinforce the message that not only is physical activity good for you but it also very enjoyable. It also 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 organisations locally Healthy Eating - Healthy Minds! Healthy Eating - Healthy Minds! As part of our active flag programme we have been learning about healthy eating as well as an active lifestyle. Today we learned all about the food pyramid and how to use it in our lives everyday! We are well on our way to happy and healthy eating habits thanks to both our parents at home and teachers at school. In school we are provided with a seasonal selection of fruit every Thursday and Friday, and it's yummy!!

Dance Show

As part of our Active Schools policy, the children enjoyed a wonderful morning of exercise, dance and fun with Viviane Moran. All classes took part, with the infant room proving the stars of the show!
