Outdoor and Adventure

Outdoor and adventure activities are facets of the physical education curriculum concerned with walking, cycling, camping and water-based activities, orienteering, and outdoor challenge activities.

Our school provides many opportunites for all of our pupils to enjoy the great outdoors. Our walks around Kerry in the month of June with Brother Daithí have given all of us a greater appreciation of the beauty and joy that is so accessible to us here in the Kingdom. We strive to have exciting, attractive, active school tours. They combine the geographical skills of map work, the physical activity of walking or running and the adventure of exploring unfamiliar locations. These activities, which are mainly non-competitive, offer alternative avenues for pupil achievement and encouragement to adopt a healthy life-style based on an enjoyment and appreciation of the outdoors.
