St. Anne’s are working towards its very first Active Schools Flag. The Active Schools Flag is a Department of Education initiative.

This flag recognises schools that “strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community”.  If you would like to find out more about the Active Schools Flag, please visit the web site

We have introduced lots of new fun activities like – ‘ D.E.A.D – Drop Everything And Dance’, a ‘running club’ on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays,  ‘Fitness Fridays’ and  ‘Buddy Thursday’.

During our running club, we are training for our upcoming 5km Fun Run and the GLO Health Mile Challenge.

We are all having so much fun and becoming fit and healthy!

Active Schools Motto 

Jump, skip, hop and run.

Just be active,

Have some fun.

Run around, touch the sky.

Go down low,

Jump up high.

Healthy Lifestyle Programme

First Class children and their parents  have started a Healthy Lifestyle Programme. This programme will be ran over  four weeks. The aim of the programme is to help parents and children to develop good eating habits and to become more physically active which will help to avoid serious illness in later life. During each of the sessions, the children and their parents engage in a variety of physical activities. The programme is very enjoyable and worthwhile for the children and adults.

We had so much fun!
