Active School Flag
An Active School is a school that strives to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. Irish Water Safety is partners with Active School Flag as part of our remit to deliver water safety information to primary school children within the primary school syllabus created by IWS.. Karen Cotter and her team support the programme by providing PAWS information to teachers at active school flag information nights and through their website. Over the years, they have helped Irish Water Safety to reach hundreds of primary school children at risk of drowning and for this we are hugely grateful.
