Walking Challenges for Schools

Cork Sports runs Schools Challenges on an annual basis. Take a look at our recent posts for more information on upcoming challenges.

Active Schools Flag

Active School Flag (ASF) is a Department of Education initiative supported by Healthy Ireland, and part of the National Physical Activity Plan.

The ASF initiative provides schools with a framework to guide, support and incentivise them to work towards achieving a physically educated and physically active school community.

Once awarded, ASF remains valid for a period of 3 years, after which time schools are invited to re-engage with the process.

Active Schools Walkway

Active School Flag, in partnership with Get Ireland Walking, have produced a WALKWAY resource pack for schools that are working towards the Active School Flag. This resource pack provides everything that you need to mark out a walking/running route around the perimeter of your
school grounds.
The purpose of this IDEAS booklet is to highlight the many ways that the walkway route can be used to:
• ENERGISE the school day
• Support the PHYSICAL EDUCATION programme
• Promote ACTIVE LEARNING across a wide variety
of subject areas
