Active Schools is a countrywide initiative that strives to get schools more active, more often! Our school has achieved many wonderful awards over the years, including five Green Flags and the Digital Schools of Excellence award.
This year, we are working hard towards and Active Schools Flag. The Active School Flag is awarded to schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. This award would be a terrific achievement for our school and would recognise all the amazing work done by our staff, our partners and of course our pupils.
Our Active School Committee gathered to brainstorm ideas for our Active School slogan. After some deliberation we decided the fairest way to choose a slogan was to open the competition to the whole school. It was a tough task to pick only one winner! The winning slogan is simple and effective Ð Energise with Exercise! It is displayed in our school corridor and near the Active School noticeboard. Some highly commended entries are also displayed.
Physical activity is an integral part of every day life in our schools. In this section of our site, you will learn about all of the amazing activity in our school. Through P.E., yard games, sports teams and many great partnerships within our community, Maynooth BNS is playing its part in making our town more healthy and active.
