On Friday 5th of April The Minister for Education and Skills, Joe Mc Hugh, launched Active School Week 2019 in Letterkenny Educate Together National School. We were very proud to host the launch and it gave us an opportunity to showcase all the great work we are doing in our school to promote our active school and to promote a healthy Ireland.
- Donegal has the highest percentage of Active School Flag schools per county in Ireland with 29% of primary schools holding current Active School Flag status.
Speaking at the launch in Letterkenny, the Minister said: “Active School Week makes it easy for teachers with fun and inclusive activities that get children more active in schools. Energising the school day brings benefits to teaching and learning in schools, as well as to health and wellbeing.
“I am especially proud to launch this year’s Active School Week in Letterkenny, in my home county, and to celebrate the success of Donegal schools with this initiative.”
