The Department of Education and Skills and Healthy Ireland will be running Active Schools week next week to encourage ALL schools and Sporting bodies to help and inspire youngsters to get moving.
The ASW initiative is about providing FUN and INCLUSIVE physical activity opportunities for ALL members of the school community. It allows schools to reinforce the message that not only is physical activity good for you but it also very enjoyable.
The Get Going Get Rowing project has been working hand in hand with Active Schools since February 2014.
In line with this, the Development Officers in Connaught and Leinster together with schools, clubs and community have worked hard to establish a full week of events and open days (on and off the water).
