The Active Flag is awarded to schools who endeavour to achieve a physically active and physically educated school community. The initiative aims to promote


 ‘more schools to become more active, more often’ 



With much hard work and dedication from our Active school committee, pupils and staff, St Michael’s was officially recognised as an ‘Active School’ in 2017.



 Since then, we have remained active through our Active Yard, Go Noodle, Tennis, Gymnastics, Dance and through participation in cross country, gaelic and soccer events. Have a look at the photographs from our Active School Week 2018 and 2019!



As with all areas of school life, the support and participation of all members of our school community including pupils, staff and parents is hugely important to ensure St. Michael’s is an Active School.



 This  school year (2019-2020) , we at  Scoil Mhichil  are working hard to renew our Active School Flag.

 Meet our  Active School Committee

The Active Agents have regular meetings to share, discuss and plan for active activities for the whole school.
Meet our Active Leaders
Every two months, we change our active leaders. Active leaders are responsible for deciding  games for each of the five active stations, setting up the equipment and explaining how each game is played to each group. 


Our Active School Noticeboards


We use our Active School Noticeboard to show everyone how we are staying active at school.


Our Sports Facilitates 


We are really lucky to have a large spacious playground with basketball nets and goal posts!   

When the weather is good,we use our green area for our Physical Education lessons, to play soccer,gaelic and to practice for Cross Country and Sports Day.


Our P.E. Store Room


We conducted our annual P.E. audit in October. We sorted all our equipment into different types of boxes and labelled them for everyone to be able to see them clearly!
