We encourage all schools to launch their Active School Walkway during National Active School Week  (23-27 April, 2018). The best way to do so is with a with a whole school FUN event. Share the photos/videos  of your launch event on Twitter feeds @GetIreWalking, @activeflag, @SportIreland and @healthyIreland using the hashtags #activeschoolwalkway, #GoWalking to be in with a chance to win prizes for your school.

This project is jointly funded by the Dormant Accounts Sports Inclusion Fund and the Healthy Ireland Fund. This funding provides an opportunity for communities, key agencies and providers to come together in partnership to deliver physical activity amenities and services within schools, communities, cities and towns throughout Ireland. Get Ireland Walking and Active School Flag have come together under the Healthy Ireland Network to provide schools with the materials necessary to create their very own Active School Walkway.

Get Ireland Walking recognises that walking is an activity with a potential risk of personal injury. Participants should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions and involvement.
