St. Mary’s Raises the Active School Flag

St. Mary’s Primary School were delighted to welcome Senator Lisa Chambers and local Deputy Robert Troy to the school on Thursday 30th May to raise our second Active Flag. Senator Chambers is currently the Leader of Seanad Éireann and is a Fianna Fáil candidate for the upcoming European Elections. 

During the ceremony, the student mayor and other pupils of the active school committee read speeches and recited a poem for the special guests. The aim of the Active Flag initiative is for schools to be more active, more often whilst promoting health and wellbeing within the school community.

Senator Chambers spoke to the pupils about the Active Schools initiative, the importance of being active, 6th Class playground leaders helping Junior classes, active baskets and much more. There was great excitement and cheer as Senator Chambers raised the active flag. The whole school completed an active dance to finish off the ceremony. 

The staff and pupils of St. Mary’s Primary School wishes to sincerely thank and acknowledge Senator Lisa Chambers and Deputy Troy for attending the ceremony and making the event so special and memorable for the pupils and staff of St. Mary’s Primary School.
