Physical Education And Sport


All of our children engage in a lively and varied Physical Education Programme which is part of the Primary School Curriculum. The whole school community is made aware of the importance of physical exercise and healthy lifestyles are encouraged.

Children have an opportunity to play in a variety of team sports. Basketball, Gaelic Football and Volleyball are enjoyed by most children with coaching available at lunchtime and after school. There is also gymnastics, dance and swimming. In addition, we liaise closely with sports clubs in Tralee with a view to promoting the involvement of children in clubs in their locality.

 

Our well-equipped gymnasium, extensive playground facilities and our proximity to the Town Park offer much opportunity for recreational and sporting activities.

In June of each year parents and teachers come together to organise our annual Sports Day. This is a fun-packed day where the emphasis in on sport for all. It is one of the highlights of the school year.
