Well done also to the girls teams who made it through to the County Finals, and were so close to bringing home silverware, narrowly missing out on second place in the finals.
Lets Get Active with the Irish Heart Foundation
The pocket planners let children track how much activity they do each day.
After the 4 weeks – each child is awarded a certificate of achievement – also supplied by the Irish Heart Foundation.
This challenge is suitable for primary school children and is a great way to support Active Flag initiative in schools
In February we received our ‘Lets get Active’ pocket planner and the ASF committee distributed one to every child in the school. The planners were very popular and encouraged everyone to get active for 60+ minutes every day. The children also did Active Homework during this initiative. There were some excellent Active Homework suggestions from the ASF committee.

Westmeath Camogie Champions 2019!
A huge congratulations from Presentation Senior School and thanks to the team for visiting the school with the cup and inspiring a future generation of All Ireland winners!
Mullingar Shamrocks Visit the School
On Thursday 8th November, following their Westmeath Senior Football Championship win, members of Shamrocks GFC brought the Flanagan Cup to the school. We were delighted to welcome the newly crowned County Champions after their historic win and members of the Active School Flag committee did a fantastic job in interviewing some of the te
am members. We got a terrific insight into what it takes to be champions and how the players keep motivated. Congratulations to everyone involved with Mullingar Shamrocks.
