Registered for Active School

With coaching and Rackard league in full flight it is clear to see that Piercestown N.S. are a very active school.

Therefore, we deserve some recognition for our efforts.

About the Active School Flag


The Department of Education and Skills wishes to recognise schools that strive to achieve a physical educated and physically active school community by awarding them the Active School Flag (ASF). The initiative is open to primary and post primary schools, special schools and Youthreach centres to apply.

The Active School Flag will be awarded to schools that:

  • Adhere to DES guidelines regarding PE timetable provision for all students
  • Teach a broad and balanced PE curriculum
  • Inform and invite the whole school community to participate in the ASF process
  • Self-evaluate current provision in terms of PE, Physical Activity and Partnerships
  •  Plan, implement and monitor improvements for each of the aforementioned areas
  • Organise an ‘Active School Week’ as part of the annual school calendar

Watch this space over the coming months as we form an active committee, set up an active noticeboard and aim to get Piercestown N.S. on the map as an Active School.
