Gaelic Games – We have partnered with different sports coaches and outside agencies over the last two and a half years. We are very lucky to have Rob from Kildare GAA come in and coach the children from Junior Infants to 6th class this year. We also have a hurling coach, John Holmes from Naas GAA who most often introduces the children to hurling for the first time. John teaches the children from junior infants to 6th class basic hurling skills. Mr Bolton is also our School Liaison Officer with our local club Eadestown GAA. He links in with the GAA club to help children to discover more about Gaelic Games.
Leinster Branch Rugby Club – We are delighted to have Mick Cahill from Leinster rugby, come in and teach the children the fundamental skills of tag rugby
GAA 5-Star – we are partnered with the GAA to become a GAA 5-Star Centre. The GAA 5 Star initiative aims to support and recognise Primary Schools that provide pupils with 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous Gaelic Games activity per week in a manner that ensures the children will experience fun, friendship, fairness and ultimately improve their fitness.
Golf – In February 2020 Dermot Griffen, the captain of Naas golf club came into our school and worked with 4th class for a few weeks and showed them basic gold skills.
Swimming – The children from junior infants to 6th class attend swimming lessons at Kilashee in Naas for 6 sessios every academic year. However, since March 2020 all swimming has been suspended due to Covid-19.
