BeActive Header

The 2017 European Week of Sport and Physical Activity will be celebrated across Ireland from 23-30 September 2017.

The European Week of Sport aims to promote sport and physical activity across Europe. This week is for everyone, regardless of age,background or fitness level. The #BeActive Schools' Campaign is a flagship event for the European Week of Sport in Ireland and a suggested programme of events has been developed in coordination with Active School Flag to take place from the 25th-29th September.

This year Sport Ireland and Active School Flag encourage the whole school community to RUN Around EUROPE during the European Week of Sport. It is a great way to run have fun and learn along the way. Be sure to register your school's involvement in the European Week of Sport.

The Take on the Teachers Challenge will return again as part of National Fitness Day and be sure to register your school, your challenge and the result on to see if teachers or students will win the 2017 challenge.
