John Paul II Primary School


Physical Education is taught in all classes every week through out the year. In addition to the progression of skills taught by the teachers there are coaches who come into the school to support the teaching of these skills. There is a coach from the Irish Football Association who teaches all classes, every week, throughout the year. He works from the DENI Curriculum Sports Programme to develop a progression of skills from Primary 1 to Primary 7.

The Foundation Stage Classes work with the Nursery Schools in the area to develop the Transition links for Nursery children moving to our Primary School. The culmination of this work is the Foundation Stage and Nursery Sports day which is hosted by John Paul ll P.S.

This is a great day for Children, Parents and Staff of the St. Bernadette's Nursery, Matt Talbot Nursery and John Paul ll P.S.
