In late May 2019, Dungourney NS were awarded their second Active School Flag (the first having been achieved in 2015).
The Active School Flag is awarded to schools that make a special effort throughout the school year in the areas of physical activity, physical education, partnerships and an annual Active School Week (undertaken in late March during an unexpected but welcome warm spell).
