Physical Education

Junior Cycle: Physical Education at Donabate Community College aims to provide students with learning opportunities through the medium of movement and to contribute to their overall development and wellbeing by helping them to lead full, active and healthy lives.

The new short course in physical education is structured around four strands: 

  • Physical activity for health and wellbeing; 
  • Games; 
  • Individual and team challenges; 
  • Dance and gymnastics.

The aim of this short course is to develop students as knowledgeable, skilful and creative participants who are confident and competent to perform in a range of activities safely.  The course aims to build students’ appreciation of the importance of health-enhancing and inclusive physical activity and a commitment to it now, and in the future.

Students will complete a CBA in second and in third year.
