Physical Education is for all students from Junior classes to school leavers. We use the curriculum to guide us through the six strands which are Aquatics,
Athletics, Dance, Games, Gymnastics and Outdoor and Adventure.
In the Senior School, we also use the Priority Learning Units from Personal Care in the Junior Certificate Level 1 and Level 2 Programmes. The Physical Education
curriculum contributes to each students overall physical and mental health by helping them to lead a full, active and healthy lifestyle. Daily incidental sensory
activities also promote physical activities and emotional well-being.
