Physical Education (P.E.)

In St. Patrick’s Secondary School leaving certificate students have 1 hour and 30 minutes of P.E. a week. P.E. in St. Patrick’s Secondary School is not offered as an exam subject for Leaving Certficate but the P.E. programme that is in place aligns with many aspects of the LCPE syllabus such as promoting physical activity in students, communicating with others, implementing a training programme, performance related fitness, inclusion, ethics and fair play, performance analysis and general well-being.
