We love PE here in Scoil Mhuire Murroe. We ensure that all children get 60 minutes of physical exercise each and every week. Take a look at our PE Timetable.We also include Active Breaks throughout the day.

PAWS Water Safety Programme
Our School will complete the PAWs Water Safety Programme in May. They will learn safety tips linked to the following topics: baths, paddling pools, emergency services, beaches, calling for help and life jackets. The children will complete online interactive lessons both in school and at home with their parents.
P.E. Resources, Facilities and Store Room
We are so lucky to have fantastic P.E. resources and equipment in our school. It is stored safely and labelled clearly in our store room. We are lucky with the wonderful facilities in our school also.
We are ensuring that all students are getting at least 60 minutes of timetabled P.E. every week.
As part of Active School Flag the staff at Scoil Mhuire Murroe have enjoyed reviewing our P.E. curriculum. We have ensured that all students in our school get at least 60 minutes of timetabled P.E. each week. We have also ensured that all five strands are taught at each class level every year. We are teaching the P.E. curriculum in collaboration with the PSSI and PDST lesson plans and resources. P.E. has always been considered a vital subject in our school. We communicate the children’s P.E. progress at parent teacher meetings and in our Annual School Reports. See below a Whole School Plan including the strands and fundamental movement skills to be covered each month.
Our teachers have completed numerous courses to further develop their ability to develop the P.E. curriculum. Some of our teachers will be attending a training day in the Athlone Education Centre next month. The training day will focus on integrating Games and Wellness into Physical Activity during the school day. The P.E. strand that we are focusing on this year is Games and Striking with an implement.
