Active Schools

Active School Flag

The Active School Flag (ASF) is a Department of Education and Skills Initiative supported by Healthy Ireland which aims to get more schools, more active, more often. It is awarded to schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. 

We are currently working towards attaining an ASF here in Scoil San Isadóir, Boherlahan. Keep an eye on this page to see what we get up to in trying to make our school more active!

Thanks to everyone because with your help, ideas and support, we achieved out first Active Flag in June 2022. 

Our committee members are the engine behind all the great ideas. They are students from 1st - 6th class. This year’s committee have been busy carrying out surveys, creating slogans, sharing ideas and performing duties. Well done to all involved. You are doing a brilliant job!



The school are striving to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. With help from our teachers, students, parents and wider community we hope that our school will continue to be recognised as an Active School. As always, when the school community puts our collective minds to something we can achieve big things. This was no different.

Local Partnerships

We have great partnerships with many local sporting clubs, particularly our GAA club, Boherlahan/Dualla. The club provides great support to our school in many ways and especially in terms of allowing us to use their wonderful facilities.

Irish Dancing and drama is taught after school in our hall.
