It is with great heart and enthusiasm that we embark on the renewal process for our Active Flag. Here at Gowran N.S, we focus on the importance of healthy minds and healthy bodies. There are so many benefits that come with being active. The obvious health benefits are increased self-esteem, greater concentration levels, along with the development of teamwork skills!
Our Active flag co-ordinators Ms. Nolan and Ms. O' Keeffe along with the Active Flag Committee have a wonderful programme of events planned out for the coming year.
We kicked off a few weeks back with our "Active Lines" and "Walk On Wednesday". Our Active Lines is where we do different stretching and exercises in our lines at the end of lunch time to get our extra bit of exercise in. Each class will also go walking up around the village, all around the walking track and back to the school during lunch time, closely supervised by two teachers. It's great to get out and enjoy a brisk walk with our friends! We are also engaging in "10 @ 10" daily where all classes do ten minutes of exercise or "Brain Breaks" either at 10 o' clock or 2 o' clock. Stay tuned for all the pictures here and activities that will be happening in our school!

Active School Flag
The Active School Flag is a whole school initiative whereby the school, parents and the local community will strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school. Gowran National School is already doing many activities whereby children are keeping fit and active. However, the Active School Flag will aim to review, improve and introduce activities to help further promote physical activity across the school. The lively children of Gowran National school will be brimming with new ideas to help each other keep active and fit. We will keep you updated with any on-going activities or upcoming events. Stay tuned for more...
