Active Schools

Active Schools Flag

Borrisokane CC has just completed the first year of the Active Schools Flag process and really embraced this. We were one of 17 pilot schools completing the “try it out stage ”. This is a student led initiative with TY’s and a small number of teachers making up the coordination team. Student leadership and student voice are core to the values of our active school team.
