In John Scottus National School, PE is more than just exercise and training, it also involves being aware of and taking care of the body. The three classes per week take place in various venues including our Secret Garden, the School Yard, as well as Sportsco, and Herbert Park. We employ a full time PE teacher to cover all strands of the national curriculum: athletics, aquatics, dance, games, gymnastics, outdoor & adventure activities, with a strong focus on karate, swimming and hockey. Students up to 4th Class participate in swimming classes for half of the school year.
Our PE activities are guided by the Whole School PE Plan, encompassing our ethos and outlining our objectives for each student through PE.
The school was originally awarded the Active School status in June 2016, and it has been renewed every year.
