Physical Education

In Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní), each student receives at least one hour of timetabled Physical Education each week. We follow a standardised Physical Education timetable, ensuring that all strands of the Physical Education curriculum are covered. The strands of the Physical Education curriculum are:

  • Athletics
  • Dance
  • Games
  • Outdoor and Adventure Activities
  • Gymnastics
  • Aquatics (2nd-6th Class)


We prioritise a different strand for development each year. Teachers attend CPD courses and share their knowledge with each other. We have prioritised Outdoor and Adventure for this year.

The Primary Physical Education Curriculum and PSSI lessons are used to inform teaching and learning.



In preparation for our Céilí Mór, each class prepared a dance and performed it for the whole school. Take a look at some of our classes rehearsing their dances.

Second Class performing ‘Shoe the Donkey’.


Sixth Class performing the ‘Two Hand Reel’.


In Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní), we are very passionate about our national games. Camogie is a wonderful game. It is fast and highly skillful. Today we had a camogie display for the school. The girls who play camogie every week showed us how it is done! All girls from 3rd to 6th are welcome to come along to camogie training on Mondays after school with Mr. Devlin and Mr. Maguire. It’s a great way to keep fit and healthy — and of course to have fun!

On Tuesday 20th March, 24 girls from 3rd-6th class headed off to Porterstown Park to take part in the third day of the Fingal Cross Country series. It was a lovely , bright , crisp, cold sunny day – ideal for cross country running.

Once again , we had fantastic performances from all of the Scoil Bhríde girls with each one of them putting in a huge effort and showing great improvement since their last outing.

Outstanding performances from Adele Anigala and Aimee Corcoran (3rd class) who finished a superb race in 4th place and 2nd place respectively , Ola Kuzma (4th class) who finished in a very good 6th place and Aoife Corcoran (5th Class) who paced herself excellently to take the lead in the final stretch and win the race in style.

Well done to all!

The final event in this series will be held in Santry Park on Tuesday 10th April.

Keep up the running during the Easter Holidays, girls.

Over the last few weeks, girls from 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class have been training really hard and making a great effort to improve their fitness. On Tuesday 27th, the girls from Scoil Bhríde Cailiní braved the freezing weather conditions to take part in the  cross country running event in Porterstown Park.

 It was an extremely successful day and we had incredible performances from every girl from 3rd to 6th class!

Our 3rd class girls kicked the day off in style with a brilliant 300 metres run.  Our very own Aimee Corcoran finished in a wonderful 2nd place! Well done Aimee!

The girls in 4th class were next in the 400 metres run and we had several top ten finishes!

Then it was the turn of our 5th class girls running in the 500 metres event. There were some terrific performances. Special congratulations must go to Aoife Corcoran who finished in First Place with a superb run.

The 6th class finished the day off in impressive fashion, running 600 metres in very snowy conditions!

Well done to all the girls involved!

A great day was had by all. A special thank you to Mr. McCrudden who has been training the girls in all sorts of weather over the last few weeks. A big thank you also to Ms. McKay and Ms. O’Reilly who accompanied the girls to the event and and gave them great support and encouragement. We look forward to another cross country run on the 20th of March in Porterstown Park! Every girl is welcome!
