We are an Active School and were awarded an Active School Flag this year. The Active School Flag invites all schools to engage in a review process. This process involves creating an action plan to further the provision of PE, physical activity and sport in schools.
The goals of the Active School Flag are:
- the importance of enjoyment and play
- maximum participation by all children
- the development of skills and understanding
- a balance between competitive and non competitive activities
- a balance between contact and non contact activities
- opportunities for achievement for each child
- activities equally suitable for boys and girls
These are some of the activities that have taken place in the school as part of this award:
- Cycle Sense
- Dance with a qualified teacher
- Gymnastics with a qualified teacher
- New sport and play equipment for the yard
- Active Flag Committee
Alan O’Connor, Senior Cork G.A.A. Team Player, took centre stage at Gaelscoil Bheanntraí when he hoisted the school’s latest acquisition, the Active School Blue Flag Award. This is a great achievement which only a handful of schools in the Country have achieved. Other special guests attending on the day were Terry O’Neill, Fr. Anthony O’Mahony, Garda Damien White and John Connolly, Mayor of Bantry and of course, the children from Gaelscoil Bheanntraí. As part of the celebrations the whole school participated in an Active School Week where children took part in a huge variety of sport from orienteering, walking, gymnastics, hip hop dancing, games etc.
