At Bruckless NS we place due emphasis on learning sport through a fun, inclusive and creative environment. All curriculum areas are covered equally throughout the year. We believe in Physical Education (the eduction of physical literacy) and not just coaching sports. We introduce and develop the ABCs (Agility, Balance and Co-ordination) in the early years before progressing to more sports specific skills.
Both Mr. O’Toole and Mrs. Maguire are great sport enthusiasts. Mr. O’Toole has a degree in Sport Studies and coaches hurling at inter county level. Mrs. Maguire has many years experience coaching many successful school teams and loves Gaelic Football.
We cover a wide range of sports in P.E.: soccer, gaelic football, basketball, unihoc, skipping, hurling, GAA handball, basketball, athletics, dance, badminton, tennis, and gymnastics to name a few. Swimming is covered every 3 years.
We welcome external visiting coaches to the school coaching various sports throughout the year and actively forge links with local clubs.
We enjoy participating as much as we can in Cumman na mBunscol and also arrange matches against schools of similar size.
Sporting our new jerseys with our new crest we compete and participate with pride.
If any child has an interest in any sport not provided for, then we are happy to accommodate that during PE lessons also.
