Health Promotion Flag

Ballyfinane N.S. is proud to be a Health Promoting school. Ballyfinane N.S. was proud to be awarded our First Health Promotion Flag in November 2019. There has always been a huge emphasis on healthy eating and exercise in Ballyfinane N.S. so we are very excited to participate in this initiative.

Healthy eating is encouraged through various subjects and there are many healthy eating activities carried out in each classroom. We are all excited about participating in our first ‘Healthy Eating Week’.

Physical activity is very important in Ballyfinane N.S. Children take part in many sports and all pupils receive tuition in Aquatics with the whole school attending lessons in the Coral Leisure Centre Killarney.

We are also proud to promote positive mental health among the entire school community and Ballyfinane N.S. holds many information seminars and workshops as well as holding a Friendship Week and an Internet Safety Day.

Healthy Lunches are very important and In Ballyfinane N.S. we encourage this. Here are some lovely tips on Healthy Lunches. Safefood Healthy Lunchbox Leaflet
