In Scoil Róis, each class receives at least one hour of P.E. every week. We are very lucky to have a large hall and beautiful Astro pitch where we can run, jump, skip, hop and play all the games we want!! Our PE classes are made up of five strands of the PE curriculum and throughout the year we take part in games, athletics, gymnastics, dance and outdoor and adventure activities.
We believe PE is a hugely important subject and we follow a school PE Policy. Physical Education provides the children with learning opportunities through the medium of movement. The Key Messages include:
The importance of enjoyment and play.
Maximum participation by all children.
The development of skills and increased understanding of the activities the children are experiencing.
Providing a balance between competitive and non-competitive activities.
Providing opportunities for achievement for each child.
Athletics was prioritized for this year and the ‘Run Around Ireland Challenge’ was a great way to promote athletics in our school.
