P.E. at St. Raphaelas

Physical Education is an integral part of each students’ week. This programme offers lots of variety for both Junior and Senior Cycle students. We focus on the learning of new skills in a fun environment and we also learn about the theory around this subject.

We cover the four strands in junior cycle P.E.:
