We set up an Active Schools Committee in our school at the start of the process as it is very important for the children  to have the opportunity to voice their opinions and ideas. There are two students from each class on our school committee who have worked very hard carrying out surveys and sharing their ideas.



As a school we worked together to find and agree on an ASF slogan for our school. The ASF Committee decided to run a poster competition in each class. The committee worked together to decide on the winning slogan. It was very difficult to pick a winner as the whole school made a huge effort in designing a slogan. Congratulations to James Mullery on winning the competition.
