Ballaghkeene N.S. is committed to providing high-quality Physical Education to all pupils. All classes receive 60 minutes of formal PE lessons each week. All classes are taught the strands of Athletics, Dance, Gymnastics, Games and Outdoor & Adventure each year. Pupils from 4th-6th class also take part in Aquatics, having swimming lessons each year in the Ferrybank Pool in Wexford town. Teachers use a variety of resources to guide them in delivering quality PE lessons. PSSI Lesson Plans are widely used throughout the school and we have focused on the Games strand for the school year 2020/2021 in order to build on our resources in this area. We have introduced the Move Well, Move Often programme to teach the Fundamental Movement Skills to all pupils. In September 2019, we introduced a standardised PE timetable, meaning that all classes will be taught the same strand and Fundamental Movement Skill at the same time during the school year. This will allow for the sharing of resources and ideas among staff and ensure that an equal amount of time is given to each strand. Also in the month of June every year, the teachers teach the PAWS programme to educate children on water safety as they move into the summer holidays and finer weather where water activities become more prevalent.
