Active School Week

Active School Week  #ASW20 will take place 27th April – 1st May, 2020

The Department of Education and Skills and Healthy Ireland encourage all schools to organise an Active School Week (ASW) as part of their school calendar.

The focus of your ASW programme should be on FUN and PARTICIPATION. It’s an ideal opportunity to introduce young people and their families to new ways of being active, both during the school day and in the local community.

Ireland Active leisure centres, national governing bodies of sport, local sports partnerships and many other national agencies, including the Irish Heart Foundation and Parkrun Ireland, are offering their support to schools running ASW programmes.

Visit to find out the ASW offers in your county.

National Active School Week takes place from 27th April to 1st May 2020 but if these dates don’t suit your school simply choose a week that does.

We love to hear about your ASW programmes. And there are lots of opportunities to win prizes for your school. Please tag us and SHARE your #ASW photos/videos on Twitter:

If your facility would like to get involved with Active School Week please contact Miriam
