Physical Education

In Delgany NS all pupils take part in PE classes twice a week. One of these classes is led by the class teacher. The second is led by Ian who owns ParagonByFowler. We are fortunate to have both an indoor GP room and lots of outside space including two yards – once which doubles as a basketball court – and a field. All strands of the PE curriculum are covered. The year is laid out as follows:

Sept/October: Athletics

November/December: Games

January/February: Gymnastics

March/April: Dance

May/June: Aquatics (water safety) and Outdoor Adventure Activities

Swimming lessons take place for the pupils from 1st class – 6th class during the school year.


This year we have prioritised orienteering which is part of the Outdoor Adventure Activities strand. All classes did some orienteering during the summer term. This was helped by our new Walking Trail provided by Active Schools which includes orienteering codes.
