Bunscoil Rinn an Chabhlaigh (BSRAC) is committed to becoming an Active school for the benefit of all pupils, parents, teachers and the wider community.  To help us achieve this aim and to demonstrate our commitment to the importance of physical activity for all we are endeavouring to achieve an Active School Flag.  The Active School Flag (ASF) is awarded to schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. The process aims to get more schools, more active, more often.

To achieve our aim of promoting lifelong physical activity and to be recognised as active school we are focussing on improvements in three main areas:

  1. Physical Education (PE): The term physical education refers to activities taught as part of the curriculum within class time where the emphasis is on learning.  Each and every child is entitled to a minimum of 60 minutes Physical Education every weekTo read more about Physical Education in BSRAC click here


  1. Physical Activity: Physical activity is an all-encompassing term which can include physical education, sport or play and any other activity undertaken for enjoyment or health. Children need 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day to keep their bodies healthy.

  1. Partnerships: Physical activity doesn’t stop at the school door and so it is important that parents and the local community play their part in ensuring that our students remain active long after the school bell has rung!

A teacher and pupil committee have been set up to help the whole school community to work towards improvements in these areas.

To read more about each of the developments we have undertaken check out our Active School News section.

With the support of all pupils, teachers, parents and the local community we have no doubt that Bunscoil Rinn an Chabhlaigh can achieve great things and be recognised far and wide as an Active School!  Mo Chumas Abú!
