Points will be given to individual children that actively walk, scoot or cycle to school. Each class' points total will be written on their door everyday for the Active Committee to count. The class with the most points at the end of the week will get an Active Prize!

The Active School Flag (ASF) is awarded to schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. The process aims to get more schools, more active, more often. Here at St. Mary's NS we believe that we are well on the way to winning this great honour, with our full schedule of activities available for our students before, during and after school!
