At Coláiste na Toirbhirte, our physical education programme is extensive and varied and seeks to create a positive and rewarding experience for our pupils.
At junior level we follow the revised junior certificate syllabus and work in a modular system. We seek to educate pupils in the physical, the social and the psychomotor aspects and again inclusivity and participation are key.
We provide double class periods for all our classes and also offer physical education at senior level.
In transition year pupils take on more leadership roles and the scope of the programme becomes even more diverse. Pupils take part in outdoor education activities, team teaching programmes, self-defence and even have time to hit the waves in surfing.
In fifth and sixth years we seek to further develop initiative and lifeskills. Pupils engage with the wider community undertaking activities such as yoga and spinning classes in the local gym.
