The #BeActive Schools Campaign is a flagship event for the European Week of Sport in Ireland and a suggested programme of events has been created for the campaign which will run from the 12th -16th September. The week will start with Move it Monday a 10 minute challenge for schools to Drop Everything and Move. The top two videos/photos capturing the challenge will win a sports equipment voucher for their school valued at €150. The #BeActive Schools Campaign is an opportunity for Irish Schools to promote physical activity in whatever way they can during the week.

Highlighted as a good practice:
10 minutes per day is a short period of time, but everyone can take part and motivate her/himself to become more and more active with everyday. Starting with at least 10 minutes in the beginning of the working day will help kids to be more focused, creative and involved in school classes. This initiative can be implemented by every school in Europe.
