Extra Curricular/Sport

Team Sports & Athletics

Apart from our ordinary P.E. Programme the school takes part in Gaelic Football, Hurling, Girls Football and Camogie competitions run by the Primary Schools’ Board.  We also send athletes to the Primary Schools’ Sports Competition in Bree.

Hurling and Gaelic Football coaching is organised and delivered by our local Games Promotion Officer, Amanda Scallon. Our Hurling 365 initiative takes place every Wednesday morning before school for our pupils in classes 1st – 3rd.  Thank you to Realt na Mara GAA club for organising the 365 initiative and for their strong continued support to the promotion of Gaelic Games in our school.

Each year we also run our own leagues in Hurling, Gaelic Football and Soccer.


Each year during the Spring term, children from First Class and Fourth Class are brought to Forest Park Leisure Centre in Courtown for swimming lessons.


Our school takes part in various table quizzes such as those run by Gorey Credit Union. We have enjoyed some notable successes over the years.
