Firies National School has been participating in the Health Promoting Schools Initiative since 2007. This on-going programme promotes a healthy lifestyle through educating children about the importance of a balanced diet, regular exercise and positive mental wellbeing. We received our latest flag in June 2019. The children took part in programmes such as Food Dudes, Grow at School and Zippy’s Friends, and participated in a variety of fun physical activities throughout the year.
