#BeActive Education Award

We are delighted to have been nominated for the #BeActive Education Award by the Irish Sports Council. This is a European award to coincide with the European Week of Sport and National Fitness Day at the end of September.

Our teachers are also an active bunch and Ms. Byrne’s Sligo team will be battling for a place in Croke Park on All-Ireland final Day when they play Tyrone in the semi-final on Saturday Sept. 2nd. The match will be broadcast live on TG4 at 3pm. We wish her the best of luck.

The #BeActive Awards competition is a central element of the annual
European Week of Sport and has been created to support projects and
individuals dedicated to the promotion of sport and physical activity
across Europe.
There are three award categories: #BeActive Education
Award, #BeActive Workplace Award & #BeActive Local Hero Award
In July 2017, St Joseph’s applied for the #BeActive Education Award.
The National Coordinating Body Sport Ireland nominated three entries across
the three award categories. St Joseph’s BNS, Terenure was chosen to
represent Ireland in the #BeActive Education Award. The selection
committee stated that there was a high level of interest in the award this year
with a number of particularly strong applications. They stated that they were
particularly impressed by the inclusive nature and the overall impact of our
efforts in St Joseph’s BNS.
Soon the European Commission will contact the National Coordinators
and EWoS Partners regarding the finalists. A representative of each
finalist will be invited to attend the Awards Gala on 12 October 2017 in
Marseille (France).
