Active School

Physical Education (PE)

The Physical Education (PE) is for children from junior infants to sixth class. The curriculum contributes to children’s overall development by helping them to lead full, active and healthy lives.  The PE curriculum provides a balanced range of activities for children through the six strands: Athletics, Dance, Gymnastics, Games, Outdoor and adventure activities and Aquatics.

Physical Activity

Our school encourages regular physical activity through our lunchtime running club, the Daily Mile initiative, Go Noodle and participation in community sporting events.

Partnerships

The school is delighted to work in partnership with Wicklow GAA to deliver gaelic football coaching, with Leinster Rugby in the delivery of school wide rugby coaching and with Wicklow Athletics through our participation in a variety of events throughout the year.

Active School Week 2019

We will hold another Active School Week on week beginning Monday 8th April.  Children should come to school wearing their P.E. tracksuit and sports shoes every day for a week packed with physical activity.

Although we are always a school that promotes sport and physical activity, this is our first time to participate in Active School Week, as part of working towards our Active Flag.  We are encouraging extra physical activity every day via our Lunchtime Running Club, Go Noodle, RTE Junior 10@10 and P.E.  There is a WOW day (Walk on Wednesday) on 25th April whereby children and parents meet at Ballycoog Church car park and walk the newly laid path to school in the morning.  We have further plans for physical pursuits for the remainder of the term;

  • Daily lunchtime Running Club
  • Fortnightly WOW days
  • Swimming lessons weekly from 9th May
  • Track and Field event hosted by Wicklow Atheletics in Shoreline Leisure Greystones on 15th May
  • Hike up Croghan Hill on 5th June
  • Annual Sports Day in June

Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for regular updates, photos and videos of all of these activities.Many thanks to our Active Flag co-ordinator, Ms. Ryan, for organising many  of these activities.
