Raheen National School is committed to promoting Physical Education for all its pupils

At Raheen National School we are commited to providing our pupils the opportunity to partake in several different sports to help develop the child’s mental, physical, and emotional development. Physical education plays a critical role in all three areas, helping to make young people healthier, teaching them self-discipline and teamwork skills, developing leadership potential, and introducing them to activities that they might enjoy and also derive a lifetime of health benefits.

The sports the school offers its pupils are as follows:

Our annual sports days is a light-hearted and informal occasion. Typically we run activities such as the egg and spoon race and the three legged race where we emphasize the element of fun for pupils. Other events include wellington throwing, running and relay races, long kick, penalty shootout, obstacle course and of course the teacher’s race!
