Our Active Partnerships

Our Active Committee consists of 10 pupils, from 2nd class upwards. The active School Committee has many responsible roles such as organising the playground leaders, making announcements over the Intercom, visiting the classrooms to talk to the classes about our different activities, keeping the Active school noticeboard up to date, keeping the PE storeroom in check, conducting and recording surveys. Our Active School Committee members are easily recognisable with their committee badges.

Our Active School Committee 2018 – 2019


Pupils who take part in physical activity and their achievements are recognised and acknowledged in our school. Students often speak in assembly about their achievements and visit classrooms with their trophies and medals. Notes from our local GAA clubs are often sent out via the school and local sports coaches visit the school regularly. Castlerahann GAA club have a noticeboard in our school which contains lots of information about local events.
