Sport in School

At Our Lady’s we understand the importance of health, well being and fitness. Sport is highly regarded and we aim to provide children with high quality experiences. From PE lessons where the core fundamental movement skills are taught within a fun, competitive curriculum to extra-curricular sports offering a wide range of activities (Street dance, gymnastics, mulit-sports, irish dancing, football, cross country running, athletics, basketball, dodgeball, netball and hockey) . Many of our children are given the chance to compete and represent their school in local and national competitions. Staff and children work hard to promote healthy lifestyles and we are very proud of our achievements. Please click on the links below to view details of the various aspects of sport.
