Being Active

(Category: Wellbeing Initiatives)
This initiative provides opportunities for schools to purchase equipment
that will support students in being physically active. Research suggests that student involvement with physical activity in school can reduce anxiety, improve social skills and also enhance their self-confidence. Schools engaging with this initiative may consider purchasing sports equipment suitable for the needs of all students, introducing a new sport to your school, going to an outdoor activity centre or holding a sports day.


• Please enclose in your evaluation a detailed description of the activities undertaken in the running of the initiative along with any relevant photographs of the activities undertaken (no direct student photos please).
• The evaluation should be submitted online at www.jcsp.ie.
