Physical Education


The P.E. curriculum provides children with learning opportunities through the medium of movement and contributes to their overall development by helping them to lead full, active and healthy lives. There are six strands in the P.E. curriculum-

• Athletics

• Dance

• Gymnastics

• Games

• Outdoor and adventure activities

• Aquatics

Teachers cover each of the above six strands over the school year. In the case of aquatics, children in the middle ands senior classrooms get a 6-week block of swimming lessons in Cavan Swimming Pool. The on-land water safety programme “PAWS” is taught to all classes each year.

In addition, all classes get a 6-week block of yoga sessions with Mrs. McManus, a 6-week block of G.A.A. coaching with Cavan GAA and 1-hr week FMS and GAA coaching with Philip Bohan.
