The pupils and staff of St. Enda’s National School are working hard at becoming more active. We hope to work together by becoming an active school and receiving the Active School Flag. This flag is awarded to schools that ‘strive to achieve a physically active and a physically educated community’.

Active School Committee
Here is our Active School Committee which is dedicated to promoting and leading active school initiatives.
The committee consists of pupils from Junior Infants to Sixth Class. We meet regularly to discuss and share our ideas for making the school a more active place, the committee members then present these ideas to their respective classes and teachers. The committee has set up a notice board in the junior end of the hall which will show all our active news and achievements, so check it out and read about famous sports stars, learn about the importance of being active for our bodies to grow and you might even get a healthy recipe for breakfast or dinner!

Here are some ideas to help you get active at home and we would welcome anyone with suggestions for keeping active to let us know!
